Re: Re: The Velibs are coming?
City’s new bike scheme is promoted by cyclists without helmets
The Herald are giving out about this, however it is actually a very controversial issue, some experts say that injuries are not reduced by wearing cycle helmets others say they are!
In 1998 the European Cyclists’ Federation adopted a position paper rejecting compulsory helmet laws as being likely to have greater negative rather than positive health effects.
I dont wear a helmet myself when cycling, but I do think the Herald should have touched on the controversy of this issue. I think they did when then pictured Trevor Sargent (and Peaches Geldof) cycling to work (or for Peaches to a club perhaps) helmetless.
