Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

Commuters - mainly but not exclusively black population. Hobby cyclists mainly but not even close to exclusively white, although both ratios change depending where you go in the country as we have a rich mix of people's. Helmet laws apply to all, although not policed as effectively as they could be....

Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

Wahoofish, does your characterisation of South African cyclists include the majority blak population? Do many black people race or ride as a hobby? Is the proportion of township commuters in helmets similar to lycra-clad white businessmen? It would be interesting to know. Not sure if you are trying...

Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

Absolutely - I have read every post, every link and as much of the reports referred to as I can. However, I am also a member of another very active cycling forum which counts two emergency room doctors and a number of first responders amongst its members, all of whom strenuously advocate helmet wea...

Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

Whilst they may not have multiple studies with debatable criteria to back up their POV, Indeed not. You might ask yourself why these type of studies are insisted upon before drugs or other new treatments can be marketed. and perhaps I am biased by my own experiences with helmets, We all are but I w...

Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

Now now, lets play nice and not call people trolls. Just because someone has not acquainted themselves with the large amount of scientific and academic reseach done on the subject and thus can't offer opinions with the same intellectual backing that you might, does not make them a troll. But this p...

Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

What a lot of energy expended arguing one side or the other. Don't wear a helmet if you choose. Personally I think that you are proving the whole Darwin theory, but who cares what I think? Wear a helmet if you choose. Good god, imagine if this much time was actually expended on a productive pursuit...

Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

Hopefully mandatory helmet use is legislated sooner rather than later. Similar to seatbelt legislation, there will always be naysayers who would rather find random statistics than follow a common sense approach.

They should legislate prison time for non compliance.

Re: "You wear a hat, why not wear a helmet?"

Perhaps it is just me, but I rarely cycle without seeing how fast I can go, either down or up a hill, and when I am off-Road, then I push myself to the edge of my ability, often beyond as evidenced by multiple injuries over the past few years. This is the stick by which I measure cycling, so this mi...
