Do you always wear a helmet while cycling? If yes why? and if no why not?
There are so many stories and theories floating around- which you you feel is the best option?
I do now. Didn't use to but a keen cyclist friend said that a friend of his came off his bike - body intact but head smashed on the pavement. A cycle helmet would have saved his life.
Like Shinkecker says - not worth the risk.
Always, and all reputable cycling events in the UK require you wear on.
I think there's some misconception by some people that they offer protection in the case of getting hit by say a car, which of course they don't. As long as you understand the extent and purpose of the protection they offer (outlined by sadly by Temirah), then you'll never saddle up without one.
Always, no question about it. Helmets now a days are pretty light weight and comfortable anyway.. not worth it to not wear one.
Because my mother worked with brain injured children, I was the first and only kid in town wearing my bright yellow helmet. Oh the embarrassment, I felt. I'm glad that to see nearly every kid wear them nowadays (thanks to education and local laws)
Of course, as an adult rider I wouldn't think of riding without a helmet. Just like I wouldn't think of paddling without a PFD. It's all about managing the risk we find.
Yes, always. I didn't think of it at first when I started bicycling again as an adult, and then a friend told me to and mentioned the risk of head injury. That convinced me.

My friend just asked me and I felt weird thinking about the answers. For me, books are forms of entertainment and knowledge. What do you guys think?

Exactly why do old people wear their pants so high?I've noticed a trend among older people. It seems the older they get the higher on their waist, or in some cases chest, their pants are worn. Does the location of our waist go up with age? Or are these people unaware they can get pants that will...
