Citibike has taken over New York.
Now the great debate runs on, To Wear a Helmet or Not?
I’ve certainly been guilty of not wearing a helmet whilst having a lovely waterfront ride, however, there is no rewind button.
Cyclists are still the minority in the traffic flow of New York; between cabs, buses, trucks, cars, vespas, motorcycles and pedicabs, you as a cyclist have to have eyes on the front, side and back of your head to steer clear of potential danger.
So ride smart, strap on a helmet, because you’ll look much less cool without a head.
