Sample text

If you’re between sizes, wear the smaller helmet. It’s slightly less likely to hit something or get caught on something in a tumbling fall. And it’s less visible to you when you’re wearing it, which means it may be easier to forget you have it on (a good thing). Here’s a test: Lie on the floor, shoulders down, with no helmet on. Or stand next to a wall and pretend you’re lying on the floor. Tilt your head down and try to make it bang the floor or wall. It won’t. Now do the same with a helmet on, and it hits.

I get yelled at when I don’t come out full blast in favor of them (see “Helmets aren’t all they’re cracked up to be” for more on that), but at least when you wear a helmet in the woods, keep it simple—think multisport matte gray, like skateboarders wear. They cost less than the long-tailed, designed-in-the-wind-tunnel helmets racers wear. Surprise: fabric doesn’t breathe "Waterproof and breathable” has been rainwear’s Holy Grail, and the quest to find it seemed to end in the early ’80s, with Gore-Tex.

Always use lights at night, because bike paths aren’t lit up, and reflectors won’t work without lights. If you happen to be out at night on the bike path without a light, ring your bell constantly. No bell? Then sing “Hotel Yorba” on a continuous loop, loud enough to warn the unseen. Lone walkers get freaked out when bike riders pass suddenly and silently. Basically, “safety” on the path is about protecting others from you, the predator. If you hit somebody, it’s your fault. You weren’t careful enough.
