Not anti-helmet, just pro-choice

Helmets don’t by any stretch of the imagination look cool unless you’re a nine year old pretending to be a Power Ranger

Aaron Banks of Sidney made good points referring to bad drivers, ignorant cyclists and inconsiderate pedestrians but they are all caused by people mollycoddling their children and not raising them to respect other human beings.  That’s common sense. Noel Gagnon of Sidney, did not make as many good points in his letter. Reports in the news in British Columbia show an incredibly small number of no-helmet-related cycling injuries. If you Google anything you’re going to drown in information, or should I say “Google information”.

These helmets don’t by any stretch of the imagination look cool … unless you’re a nine year old pretending to be a Power Ranger, whatever that is.

As far as riding in traffic goes, I’ve done it, many times, in Vancouver, without a helmet. Yes it is dangerous. I’m not anti-helmet, I’m just pro choice.
