A Closer Look at the State of Bicycling Helmet Technology: Well, the last vestiges of the polar vortex are disappearing and many may be ready to start cycling. Unfortunately, only about half of cyclists regularly wear helmets. This is tragic as helmets can save your life or prevent serious injury.
I've always been a big fan of helmets. When I was in medical school in 1980, I accidentally sailed off a three-foot concrete ramp at 16 mph and my helmet saved a serious head injury and I only broke my collarbone. Believe me, bike helmets 35 years ago did not look anywhere as cool as they do today.
