My Helmet Rant


The Boston helmet campaign really pushed my buttons. To suggest a cyclist will eventually fall victim to a crash of some sort, and thus should always wear a helmet just in case, simply advances the same, old tiring argument: cycling is a dangerous activity.

To the contrary:
  • Cycling is a very safe activity.
  • Cycling is a very enjoyable activity.
To suggest otherwise misdirects the conversation. Come on, Boston.

Sheesh.
