After looking at the evidence, I’m happy to conclude that I’ll choose to wear a helmet, but I’ll not be beating the drum that cyclists should be forced to wear helmets – as the health benefits of cycling with or without a helmet are so great, that the risks of riding with or without a helmet pale in comparison. The evidence paradoxically seems to show that while wearing helmets does make cyclists safer, helmet laws don’t make cyclists safer and actually harm public health in the long run.
