With the Melbourne bike share scheme failing fast, in part due to our compulsory helmet laws, the state government,led by the hon Ted Baillieu came up with this.Subsidised  helmets!How could you not love that? A Blue Belle helmet will cost you $5 dollars at a designated 7/11. Interestingly,at the 7/ll where I purchased mine,the shelves were stacked top to bottom with unsold helmets. And the quality? Top notch. Light,well ventilated and a perfect fit.

But then you could spend $245 on one of these.
