And yet they have extremely low rates of cycling related head injuries. Meanwhile, the US is among those countries that lead in both wearing helmets and head injuries. One of the main differences? Serious investments in cycling infrastructure, much of which is segregated or protected from auto traffic.
I’m not advocating a helmet-free lifestyle as much as I’m advocating an educated public and a human-appropriate infrastructure.
