Why We Shouldn’t Bike with a Helmet

I will seldom post a “hey look at this” but I liked this one.

Mikael Colville-Andersen giving a speech at TEDx in Copenhagen on Why We Shouldn’t Bike with a Helmet.  Grant at Rivendell tipped me to this through their Blog.  This is the most concise expression I have yet seen on brining bicycles back into our culture as everyday transportation and not just play things or exercise equipment.   Enjoy, and spread the word.  Actively riding in your own community every day will help to improve the quality of your rides, be the front edge of the rising tide.

Regularly scheduled posting will catch up later this week, Daylight Saving Time is spinning me sideways still.

    On the other hand….I flatted at speed 30 years ago and went down hard..Cracked my helmet but not my noggin. I do pull it off on long hills sometimes but it is a very minor inconvenience for a measure of safety.
