Thread Box:
Not Wearing A Helmet!
Thread started by Antranik at 04.3.09 - 5:53 am

Hey everyone.. my brother and I go riding all the time and often times replace our usual commute by car with the bicycle cause we're badass like that

Well I always wear a helmet.
But my brother almost always DOESN'T wear it.

I tell him everytime "BRO wtf dude... why dont u wear your helmet!!!"
and he goes "ehhhhh, whatever it's ok"

He's 18 and hasn't had a bad crash so I guess he thinks it's still way uncool to wear one. In fact, most of the young ridazz don't seem to wear helmets. I mean, it's like a fucking seatbelt, why would u drive a car without wearing a seatbelt, right?

So anyway, I can't convince him, so maybe you can help. Suggestions?

You only really need to wear a helmet if you're just about to crash. The rest of the time they're optional.

Also, whether or not you wear a helmet, remember to drink a moderate amount of alcohol before a ride. It takes the edge off, so in the event of a crash you'll go limp and not injure yourself as much.

When I got hit by a car this week, I wasn't wearing my helmet. I always wear it, but on that one day, I didn't. I was like, "Whatever, I'll be fine" and as if to punish my hubris, I was hit by a car. Fortunately I didn't hit my head, but I got lucky. You can bet I will ALWAYS wear it now.

If I see two cute boys on bikes, the one wearing the helmet is the one I'd bang ; p The helmet shows that he's a serious cyclist, and that's hot.

They make some pretty slick-looking helmets. I'd say maybe get some gloves to go with the helmet...that combo looks pretty fierce, you know? I know I feel fierce with my helmet and gloves!

But I don't know what else to say. I have younger siblings too and at that age, you're all-knowing and invincible.

I think it'd help if us older cyclists provide a good example by wearing our helmets. It makes a difference to the kiddies.

Your brother's right, helmets are pretty hopelessly uncool. I mean, who wants to look like a cyclist while you're RIDING YOUR BIKE?

But just imagine how uncool it would be to suffer a major head injury and have to wear one of those dorky helmets ALL THE TIME, or worse.

Me, I'll stick with wearing one when I ride and enjoy being able to take it off when I'm not riding.

Sometimes I wear it, sometimes I don't.
That may be dumb ... but not as dumb as wearing it never.
I've got a fiancé and a cat and basically a lot to live for so that inspires me to wear the helmet when I am expecting hectic road conditions.

i only get into accidents/crash everytime i wear a helmet.
like #32 when the lady decided to pull into the parking garage and cut me off running me into the passenger side 2 days ago.

I wear a helmet probably 30% of the time..... but I'd say 99% of the time I use my front minewt night rider on flash during the day and night. Using that light has saved me from collisions at least 3 times that I've noticed.

What I'm saying is that its not just a helmet that is going to save your life. Use a blinky light at all times, and ride predictably and reason-ably so that cars can see you better.

I think its really funny to see people who ride with their helmet hanging from their backpack.

WTF?

If you're gonna carry the damn thing you might as well wear it.

The worst crash I have ever been in, i wasn't wearing a helmet, I got lucky and ended up with some road rash and a broken rib, however, I may not have broken anything if I had had my helmet on. It definitely would have prevented a large amount of the road rash on my face.

There's a picture of the result in Horray for Crashes.

This crash had NOTHING to do with traffic.
Helmets are a good idea.
It's rare I don't wear mine, and mostly only on freak bikes where I know I won't be going quickly.

@ iJunes
both of my major crashes were helmeted. I therefore have this superstition that if i have the slightest urge to wear the helmet I listen to it.

@ Roadblock
another safety feature i see you using is your tallness i'm pretty sure it helps your visibility and discourages dumb-fucks from messing with you.

@ Stillline

Sometimes I take my helmet off when I go on the bike path, or when my ride is coming to an end. Lets say 3 or 4 blocks b4 my destination. So i can cool off a bit and not arrive as sweaty. but yeah who knows why people bring a helmet and don't use.

rolling with a unbuckled helmet is also a worst of both worlds things.

And then there's the argument that cars tend to drive less carefully around helmeted riders..

when you wear a helmet i find that drivers are more likely to think you want to stay alive.

and less likely to try to kill you.

I could see that being the case.

Another good reason to wear one is that it would serve as some nice, riot-gear for the other "Aggressors" whose sole-purpose is to hate anything not on four-wheels and equipped with a motor.

I've actually had bottles bounce right off my helmet!!!

Tell your bro that he never will be cool anyway, so he might as well wear one. And then get him one that looks like a skating helmet.
