Since I started riding my bikeE about a year ago, I've started to forgo wearing my helmet. I ride civilly on mostly country roads with very little traffic. My reasoning is that since an end over is such an unlikely event, I don't see much benefit in risk reduction wearing a helmet. I prefer a baseball cap with a nice visor/brim to help me see better. I'd appreciate hearing your comments, especially if a helmet has actually saved you from serious injury.
