Also, do you anti-helmet cyclists ever ride hills, like the Escarpment roads and trails? There's no way I would feel safe on some of the steep descents with no helmet...a styrofoam helmet is better than nothing!

I don't think of myself as an "ani-helmet cyclist." But my helmet hardly ever sees my head, so I'll chime in.

I rarely ride up or down the escarpment. And if you mean rough gravel trails or woodland trails, then no, I don't bike those either. I ride on the road or groomed paths for the most part.

I feel very safe when I ride on the roads - upright, alert and considerate. I just don't believe that cycling around town as I do it is especially dangerous nor that a helmet will protect me enough from most of the dangers I do face to make it worth the bother.
