    Sure, if you're in the Tour de France, not Tour de Martha's Vineyard.

    They are common in very risk averse societies such as the US and UK that are not big on mass get-to-work cycling. Probably 70pc of bike riders, probably higher for children, will wear bike helmets in the UK. I'm sure in a place like NYC the figures are similar.

    Funny thing is, when I'm in staying in Brugge, leaving the city at 8AM to get to work, I see literally hundreds of bike riders, on their way to work, and hardly any of them wears a helmet.

    I think the Belgian feeling is that they don't see the need to look like complete bell-ends when riding a bicycle. Plus, in Belgium and Holland, cyclists have right of way over other road users that they do not have elsewhere.

    Only if they wore them while riding GIRLS bikes.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    No. Obama, however, looks like a nancy boy both in his attire, his bike, and his helmet. Sorry, dude just doesn't exude testosterone. But he has Michelle, so that kind of makes up for it.
