Wear a helmet, you twat

I wear a helmet when I ride my bike.  I do this mostly because the cars I ride along next to weigh an average of 4000 lbs and I have common sense. But partially I wear it because helmets are super stylish.

I see countless bikers everyday on my way to class, noggins blowing recklessly in the wind.

I do not get it.  DO THEY NOT REALIZE THAT THEY ONLY HAVE ONE VERY VERY VERY FRAGILE BRAIN?

People who bike for a living wear helmets? GASP.

Maybe you think you’re some kind of pro-biker, and that it’s more likely for a car to hit you walking than while you weave in and out of traffic on your bike.  Here is what I have to say to you:

  • The chances are pretty high you accidentally forgot to put your brakes back on your bike because  your little fixed gear has to be light weight and fast.  So you’ll probably start riding and have no way to safely stop.
  • The more times you run a red light, the more likely a car will hit you. (need I say, accidentally?)
  • While in the park you could swerve to avoid hitting an adorable little dog/child and run into a very hard tree or statue.

Even Sesapus wears a helmet and he has no brain.

True, a helmet has limited safety features.  It cannot prevent you from breaking your spine, but it can’t hurt anything either.

If you haven’t noticed, humans are weak.  We need all the help we can get.

Even Sesapus understands.

Please, use your brain before it gets splattered on the street.

Put a helmet on.

    I have a bike but I’m too nervous to ride it. And I would definitely wear a helmet but…but…they make me look like a NERD!

    Plus I’m afraid to be in the same stereotype as all the bikers who take up the entire road, blow right past stop signs and red lights, and decide to go the wrong way down Lincoln which I did not notice until I only looked in one direction while driving and when I started to go I saw this biker had to dive out of the way because he’s a moron who goes down the wrong way on a one-way street.

    On a related note, I’ve decided there are few things more nerve-wracking than driving next to a very wobbly biker.

  2. Helmets are sexy, idk what you’re talking about.

    But yeah, biking is a little bit sketch in Savannah, but my mantra is if I can do it, anyone can. Seriously, I am so uncoordinated. Just proceed with caution and you should be fine.
