Cold ears

It is wonderful that the weather in England is getting a little milder. Yesterday I had no need to wear my gloves!

It is still chilly on a bike though and people are still wearing woolly hats under their helmets.

I was pondering on this whilst standing at the bus stop, watching a cyclist go by and thought. "I am surprised to have never seen a bicycle helmet with ear muffs or flaps. During the recent cold spell we had, I was struck by the expression on the face of a cycling police officer. He looked pained. He probably was pained as his ears had no protection and they looked raw.
