Safety First, right?
Ok, when I first wrote this, I didn’t mean for it to be a debate or to talk bad about Samantha. I will shamelessly wear my helmet, regardless, but I just thought it was funny that she thought it was funny. Sorry, Sam…
During a random conversation with Samantha and her sister, it came up that I wear a helmet when I ride my bike. And when I say ride my bike, I mean ride my bike through my neighborhood.
They started to laugh at me.
Yes, me and my pink helmet.
Sure, I’m not blazing the dangerous mountain terrain or on Hwy 280. But I’m not ashamed. I don’t trust cars on the main street through my neighborhood; I’m a little shocked I’ve never been clipped by a car! Especially, since you have to ride going with traffic on a bike. My life is in their hands. So, on the helmet goes.
I’m not the only crazy one, right!? What do you think- is it silly to wear my helmet through the neighborhood?
**PS: I also have my name and emergency info in my Camelbak when I go running and biking because you just never know–SAFETY FIRST!
