Wearing your helmet is not just about you and your cycling skills, most often it is about what other people, dogs, cyclists, chipmunks, drivers, and flying objects can do to you, and your head.

    That’s a powerful story and he is very lucky. I’ve had the opportunity to work with individuals who have suffered from Traumatic Brain Injuries, in almost every case, it was preventable or the damage could have been minimized with some very basic changes in behavior (helmet, seat belt and such). We only get one brain in life…we should take good care of it.


    • Jack,

      My boys are quite used to hearing me say, ‘I’m still paying for those brains. Put on your helmet!’ Though at their ages they wear helmets without complaint.

      I wish more parents would wear them when riding with their kids. Even on the bike path. Young riders are unpredictable, and their reactions to the things around them can cause trouble for other riders.

      Thanks for stopping by.
