Add Some Cuteness to your Noggin

I am a big fan of wearing helmets whether you're riding a bike, scooter, or skateboard, no matter how old you are or how far you may be riding.  I went to college in a city centered around bikes, and I rarely saw anyone use a helmet.  Driving through the parking lot one day, I was going very slow around a blind corner that I knew bicyclists liked to cut across to avoid a speed bump, and low and behold, a bicyclist ran right into the front of my car.  And he wasn't wearing a helmet.  I'm so thankful he wasn't hurt, even if it was his fault for riding on the wrong side of the road, but he easily could have been seriously injured.

I was one of those people that didn't wear a helmet at first, but then I began to understand the consequences as more of my friends got into accidents (everyone rode a bike in this city).  It took me forever to find a helmet I like because they are all so dang ugly.  I'm sure other people are having this problem as well.  I hope you find a helmet cute enough that you'll want to wear it every time your ride a bike.

And just in case those weren't cute enough for you, look at these adorable reflective bows that velcro through the air vents of helmets:
