Thinking about whether or not you should bother putting on a bike helmet?

Let me run a hypothetical past you.


Lets say you're on your way home after a hard day at work.

And you're travelling straight through an intersection on a green light when an SUV pulls a left turn directly across your path.

You hammer on your brakes in an effort to avoid a collision and lose control of your bike.

You go flying over your handlebars and do a superman through the air.

You end up striking the pavement with your forehead  and in a great deal of pain.

Do you think it would have been better to have been wearing:

1.  a bicycle helmet;

2.  your Blue Jays baseball cap;

3.  a black longshoreman style touque?

You tell me.

The bottomline here is simple - the evidence is clear.

Bicycle helmets help to prevent head injury.

And more to the point - they prevent the tragedy that you and your family might experience should you be unfortunate enough to suffer one.

A guest editorial from the Edmonton Journal ( published in the Province on Nov 7/13) might give you some food for thought.
