You might think that my support for today’s International Helmet Awareness Day comes from being an instructor, you know a proper Ms-have-you-checked-your-hat’s -kite- mark type every time you have a lead rope in your hands. It’s not.
I used to like riding without a hat and guess I could say I still like it, I just don’t do it any more. Self-perseverance doesn’t necessarily guide me nor am I scared to ride without head gear as such.
The driving force behind my passionate support for wearing a helmet when riding at all times is
my love for being independent and self-sufficient. My greatest riding fear is to be somewhat unable to look after myself, paralysed, spoon fed, confined to a wheelchair, sporting pampers adorned underwear. You get the picture.
I think our bodies bounce reasonably well most of the time, our heads not so much.
Reblog or share if you too support riding smart 🙂 What are your views? Do you support Riders4Helmets?
