The cute girls I see puttering around the USC campus on their cruisers are probably not at much risk for a head injury at the just above walking speeds that they use. I for one am all for those long blond locks flowing in the wind, not to mention the short shorts showing off those cycling legs. There has to be some benefit to living in this terrible city.

I mean if they were on a road bike doing 20mph then yeah, I would agree they look pretty stupid. But doing 8mph on the sidewalk for a 1/4 mile you'd be hard pressed to even skin your knee if you went down.

If you are looking at a beautiful girl on a bicycle and the first though that pops into your head is, "she should be wearing a helmet." maybe you should check if you didn't already fall on your own head?
