    Helmets - Never need them until you need them

    Out for a quick 25 on the tandem this morning on the bike trail. Counted al least six riders with no helmets on. A guy passes us, runs the blind t-intersection maintenance road stop sign at the Aquatic Center and plows right into the side of a CalTrans truck. He got really lucky. Minor cuts and scrapes on his face and (probably) a broken wrist. His helmet was unbroken, but really scarred up. He was out cold for a short time. When he woke up, he had no recollection of what happened. Could have been a lot more serious if he didn't have his helmet on.

    I rode right past there not so long ago and didn't see anything at all. Guess I missed it. Hope the fellow comes out ok.

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Most important piece of safety equipment is your mind.

    People can take that a number of ways.
