Research presented in 2019 shows a connection between helmet use and the accident rate. Cycling UK says;

In any case, there are serious doubts about the effectiveness of helmets. They are, and can only be, designed to withstand minor knocks and falls, not serious traffic collisions. Some evidence suggests they may in fact increase the risk of cyclists having falls or collisions in the first place, or suffering neck injuries.

The advice in the Code needs to change.

A motion for a national cycling strategy to increase cycling levels may also be worth putting forward for 2020.

Cycling UK adopted a new five year strategy in 2018.
