I can’t take any credit for this article in Bicycling magazine, written by Bruce Barcott. But I found it a most illuminating read, especially amidst the considerable hype, truths and, yes, myths doing the rounds about the arguments for and against the wearing of bicycle helmets. As you’ll see, this guy has really done his homework, speaking to some genuine experts on all sides of the fence. Raises some very interesting points; ones I reckon every cyclist should be aware of.
(Oh, this article also appears in the current issue of BIKE magazine in Australia, which is actually where I first found it.)
