Biking Without A Helmet
Is fucking crazy
I did my regular ride up and back down the west side bike path today.
I saw a bunch of people riding without helmets. So I started counting.
Almost 50% of the bikers I saw today were not wearing helmets.
And that is in the wake of a death earlier this summer on the exact stretch that I saw so many people riding without helmets. That 56 year old cyclist wasn’t wearing a helmet either.
Biking is dangerous.
Urban biking is more dangerous.
Urban biking without a helmet is suicidal.
