I'm curious about when and why people wear helmets. I usually wear a helmet when I ride but sometimes when I am just doing a quick trip in the neighborhood or doing a ride with my kids I don't. Three times in the last week I've gotten grief from about not wearing a helmet. Once from a non-cycling type and twice from other riders. My initial response was to tell them to eff-off but when I talked to them about it I was surprised to hear their responses. One guy thought it was the law, while one of the cyclists felt I was doing a disservice to the "cycling community". As an adult I thought I could make decisions for myself but obviously the Safety Nazis have other ideas. Has anyone else had to deal with this?
