Put a Lid On It
Rapha's renowned photo stories have depicted cyclists traversing through various landscapes around the globe. These cyclists range from pro racers to randonneurs to serious amateur riders. We shoot them riding as they would ride a bike in such environments, even without the photographer on the bike or in the car nearby. Occasionally we receive reactions to such pictures, comments suggesting we have a responsibility to make sure the riders are always photographed wearing lids. Some of our riders do wear helmets, others don't. It is ultimately up to the individual rider.
If you look at pictures of the pros training, some of them wear helmets, others choose not to. We don't suggest you don't wear a helmet by photographing riders without, but we don't suggest you do. It is your choice. Safe riding.

- @playa_mansa Sorry, somehow missed this. Our backpack is great for general use. Most of us here use it both on and off the bike.
