    Can you get rid of it if you leave on a hill, for the climbing part of your
    cycling trip?

    Not if it's a public road. However going on past performance it's hard
    to see how this legislation will be enforced.

    Interesting quandry will be a UCI road race in SA with a mountain top
    finish ;-)

    In Australia you must wear a helmet at all times, including hills or
    mountains.
