""If headphones genuinely endanger others why do race organisers allow folk to wear them and start in them? Try cycling in a an organised race without a helmet. You just won't get past the start line. Try failing to meet the mimimum time for a stretch on a sportive, you'll get put in the broom wagon. How come running can't do same?
If they don't endanger but inconvenience then surely it has to be a case of live and let live?""
Couple of observations on this:
Why should a helmet be compulsory in a cycle race? Who is endangered by not wearing one?
Should running introduce speed limits? Not pass 2k in a park run within, say 10 minutes, and you have to drop out?
