Front page story in today's Wall St. Journal blew my mind when I read it.
"Grown men wear helmets and fluorescent jackets, and it looks dangerous." The statistics were even more discouraging. The Dutch Cyclists Union pushes hard against use of helmets.
Here in Pennsylvania we have a mandatory bicycle helmet law for riders under 12 years old. Never enforced but not a bad idea in my mind.
Here is a link to the article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...616160146.html
For me I never leave the driveway without a helmet. Maybe the Dutch drivers are all really considerate to cyclists but here in the good ole USA not so much.
