Should cycle helmets be compulsory? No!

Everyone seems to have an opinion on it!  A few people have told me that cyclists should have to wear a helmet.  No they should no.  I have tried explaining but the points about the inconvenience of wearing one and my feeling that drivers give me more room when I am helmet free didn’t have the strongest sway.

I sat down with a pen and paper and then a keyboard and thought about all the reasons I didn’t wear one.  Hopefully the following video gives a strong set of reasons why wearing a cycle helmet should be a choice.  It should not be compulsory.  I hardly ever wear one.

And you shouldn’t.  And you should.  It’s up to you.
