Bike PSA

I was passed on my way home Sunday by two teenage boys on bikes. What drew my attention to them was the fact that they were not just wearing helmets, but the straps were in the proper place. (extra points for doing Princeton guys)

…Sad that that is what stood out. It pains me to see all these kids, and adults, riding without helmets on. I get it guys, there was a time when I did not want too wear on either. However, I know seasoned riders who have been biking longer than I’ve been alive who have had some very bad falls. For those who wear one but with a loose strap, that may even be more dangerous than riding without one.

Please wear your helmets & tighten the strap.
