What If We'd Worn Them?

If you're of my generation, you didn't wear a bike helmet when you were a kid.  But, if you have kids, you probably are making them wear helmets when they ride--at least if you're in the US.

That got me to wondering:  What would our childhoods have been like if we wore bike helmets?

  1. Once you start down that track you have to consider hands, knees, elbows, heck the whole body! I suggest a Bibendum suit like the Michelin logo which inflates once seven sensors compare notes and acceleration and tilt to determine probability of danger and inflate like an airbag... I could see kids just falling for the fun of it...

    Not sure if it would work in Florida heat.

  2. Coline--I might try a suit like that for fun--but certainly not in the Florida heat! Happy New Year!
