A full-face cycling helmet from a company called The Beam has smashed its crowdfunding goal, once again reopening the debate around cycling safety. Safe or stupid: would this bike helmet actually make cycling safer? Si and Conor discuss this, plus crocs for gravel riding, the toughest Giro for decades and the announcement that Mark Cavendish will retire at the end of 2023.
