We were having the Great Helmet Debate again at the bike shop the other day and someone mentioned that they where a helemet except when touring. Over the years, I myself have worn, and foregone, a helmet on a various bike rides but have always worn one when touring. I'm curious how many people tour with a helmet, how many don't and how many bring one but don't always wear it.
Please limit your participation in this thread and this poll to whether or not you wear a helmet. Please, no judging or criticizing of others for wearing or not wearing helmets. I'd like to get the most accurate response from people and I think assuring folks that there will be no lectures on safety will help.
