If Natasha Richardson can die from a fall on a Bunny Slope, I guess I need to be more vigilant about wearing my helmet. Untill now I generally didn't bother with one when doing maintainance/test rides out in front of the house. I,ve even been tempted to ride the recumbent along the River Trail without my helmet. The temptation is now gone.
My thoughts are with her family.
Lesson: any one can have a freak accident- - - wear that helmet 100% of the time.
EDIT: wear that helmet 100% of the time that you're on your bike.
