To hard-top or not to hard-top, that is the question. Whether 'tis wiser to strap on a helmet before taking to the road--or not.
Sick to death of the helmet debate?
As someone who is not crazy about wearing a helmet, but does when on my own bikes here at home, I think this is worth a read: organizers of cycling outings in Scotland change their policy on helmets.
I'm fascinated by this in part because the stats on both sides can show such wildly different pictures. (I know, I know, stats can be manipulated, and you're right but...)
I also get anecdotal evidence on both sides (the kid whose head was lodged in a windshield, but simply unlatched the chin strap of his helmet and walked away, the rider who sustained additional neck injuries because of the visor of the helmet, etc.) So, I remain interested in the topic.
Where do you stand/sit on the topic? Are you an "Always", "Never" or "When it seems smart" helmet user?
Oh, and just because, VeloCityCat, otherwise known as Meisje, is telling me it's time to get off the chair and head out the door...
