A No-Brainer for Bicyclists

Most of the time, my favorite dinner companion is my bicycle helmet.
It doesn't chew with its mouth open.
It doesn't argue about politics or religion.
It just sits there quietly, blinking now and then, so politely.

It's a no-brainer (no pun intended) that a bicycle helmet can often save you from a devastating head injury in a bicycle accident.  Umpteen studies have been done that support this fact.  However, for adults in Delaware, there is no law on the books requiring the use of a bicycle helmet.  I suppose Delaware assumes we are smart enough to know what to do.  It's up to us to decide if we want to protect our brain and life.

For more information on bicycle helmets and how to choose the best model for you and why, go to this site.
