So jogging or running across the Savannah and taking a fall is pretty benign.
And so is cycling at running speed in our artificial world and taking a fall. Being run over by a car afterwards, etc, is another cup of tea, but I wouldn't count on a bicycle helmet to safe the day if that happens. And while our heads most certainly evolved to take a beating, they're indeed not very good at it, but then again, your typical bicycle accident won't result in much of a beating. And yes, the head is a bit higher over the surface, usually, but that's not going to make a huge difference.
