Pictures of the Singer Pink Biking in Berlin

A FitSugar PSA: Wear a Bike Helmet For Goodness Sake!

While Pink was in Berlin for her Funhouse Summer Carnival tour, she still managed to take time off to enjoy the city. We LOVE that Pink's idea of fun is riding a bike, especially while traveling, because it's a great way to check out a new city and get in some exercise at the same time. Still, I gotta ask, "Pink, where the heck is your helmet?"

Allow me to just rant a little bit and remind all of you how very important it is to wear a helmet while biking. A bike helmet may not be the most fashionable accessory, but it could be what saves you from sustaining a serious injury if you're ever in an accident. And even though you might be a safe biker, you have to account for the fact that not everyone on the road is. In a sense, a bike helmet is akin to wearing a seat belt in a car. And because accidents happen, better safe than sorry, right? If I still haven't convinced you, take into account a report stating that that helmet laws have cut the amount of bicycle related deaths in children by 50 percent.

As someone who has suffered a fairly bad accident, I can't imagine not wearing one. Any adult who gets on a bicycle without a helmet deserves a head injury!

I don't think it matters where you are biking: you should ALWAYS wear a helmet. I'm a bike commuter and I follow all rules - stop at stop signs and red lights, signal when turning, yield to pedestrians - but this won't necessarily keep me from getting into accidents. A few months ago, I was riding behind another bike commuter in a bike lane when someone riding in a cab opened their door. The person in front of me had no time to stop and was hit by the car door, causing her to be thrown into a car parked to her right. Luckily she had a helmet on, so she escaped with some bumps, scratches, and a large bruise on her face. The cab should have looked before unlocking the door, but this could have happened anywhere - Europe OR the USA.
