Ok here, everyone is jealous of your strong conviction to display your manliness by constantly claiming to not need a helmet...k? Get over yourself, many people ride without helmets they just aren't so attention starved that they feel a need to educate the public about their habits.


#1 I'm not the one that brought it up.

#2 This is the last thing I wanted to talk about in this thread. I was trying to talk about Letchworth.

#3 All of you can mind your business when it comes to my helmet wearing status.

Look, I'm 38 years old, and I've been into bikes for around 30 years.

I've never worn a helmet and I never will, and there is nothing you can say to me that will change my mind.

I'd wear a helmet in my car before I would on a bike.

It's not just falls/accidents that cause head injuries. I have seen low branches, crack helmets in half. Ask Jon about that one?


That happened to me once and I still felt like someone dropped a hammer on my head :roll:

Just rolling out of a crash works awesome but what happens when the 'roll' begins on large rocks head first?

You wear a baseball cap when you ride, a little styrofoam hat has to be much cooler, and safer at the same time. Sounds like a win win situation to me.

Let me rephrase it then: a helmet is totally unnecessary for me.

If you feel like you need your little styrofoam hat then feel free to wear it.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
