Seriously, though, every day I see bicyclists in the city who are not wearing helmets–and it makes me cringe. I know that they look goofy, and can be hot, but it doesn’t matter. You should always wear a bike helmet. Besides, they’re not that bad anymore. I remember the spherical white Bell helmet that I used to wear as a kid. I hated that thing–it squished my head, was heavy, and looked really dorky. Now, there are some helmets that are more space than helmet. For example, these guys:
And if you like color and/or something kind of girly, you can always get one of these:
But adults can get nifty covers to make their “sk8er” style helmets look like hats:
So, the moral of this story is that there are lots of cool helmets out there. As a result, there is no excuse for not wearing one. Do you hear me fellow bicyclists? I thought so. Go get a helmet!
