I recommend that you always wear a helmet when cycling. On Tuesday morning, as I rode to work, a car pulled out in front of me on a one-lane road. Rather than hit the car, I hit the brakes, and then the road. My helmet took most of the punishment, but I was left with part of my glasses embedded in my eyebrow. I'm sure that if I hand't been wearing my helmet, my accident would have been much worse. Wear your helmet.

On a one-day trip to Valencia, I enjoyed the modern architecture of La Ciudad de las Artes y la Ciencias, where the International Astronautics Congress was held. (The slide-show is hosted at picassaweb, which is a very convenient way to post images if you are Picassa user.)
