It's hard to imagine that people still ride bicycles without first donning bike helmets to protect their heads, yet some do. Annually, roughly 900 bicyclists die in bike accidents, and of that total, three-quarters of those deaths are attributed to head injuries.
However, nearly 90 percent of all brain injuries stemming from bike wrecks could be averted through the proper usage of bicycle helmets.Helmets also help riders appear more visible to drivers. As part of protective cycling gear, it is the first line of defense for bicyclists to protect themselves.Helmets don't have to be dull, boring lids. There are many designs to choose from, allowing riders to select the helmet that appeals to them and matches their style.
