I cringe when I see anyone on a bike without a helmet. I believe the risk is too great, our brains and lives are just too important to not simply donning a helmet while out on a bicycle. Some sobering statistics:
- Riding without a proper helmet increases the risk of a serious head injury or fatal crash by 14 times.
- The risk of brain injury is reduced 88% when wearing a proper helmet.
- The risk of a fatal bike crash is reduced by 75% when wearing a proper helmet.
