Nicknamed "brain buckets," bike helmets are a crucial part of bicycling gear. While parents usually outfit their small children with colourful helmets for neighbourhood biking, almost 90 per cent of bicycle deaths and injuries actually occur in cyclists over 16 years old, so helmets for adult riders are particularly important as well.

When worn correctly, bike helmets are 70 per cent effective in preventing severe injury. It seems like a "no-brainer," so when enjoying your next ride, protect your head with a helmet.
