yesterday I decided to ride home without my helmet on. I strapped it to my rack and rode. nothing happened. but I felt vaguely uneasy and decidedly "less safe" even though I know this is not necessarily true. wierd. it seems that I "feel" safer with the thing on. Does this mean I am not as careful with the thing on my head because I think I am safer? am I overthinking this? and what about global warming? damn helmets.

Cyclists fare best when they recognize that there are times when acting vehicularly is not the best practice, and are flexible enough to do what is necessary as the situation warrants.--Me
