When I was a kid, there were no bike helmets – just wind in my hair. Unfortunately bike accidents can mean head injuries, and that's why helmets are encouraged today. Now that I'm a mom, I wouldn't think of letting my girls ride their bikes or trikes without a helmet. I must admit, I really use to despise wearing one myself. They're not very attractive and I felt like a helmet interfered with my sense of awareness. Now, I am totally used to the sensation of the helmet and really appreciate the little visor on the front of mine. How do you feel about wearing a helmet while bike riding? Are there any laws in your town about bike helmets? Do you think everyone should wear one all the time, or maybe only on certain roads? Should helmets only be for children?
