Today, on a gorgeous Memorial Sunday, my wife and I had the all-American dinner – hot dogs – at Ted’s, an iconic institution here in Buffalo. Neither of us are fond of hot dogs anymore, but we figured once a year is okay.
On the drive home we passed 9 cyclists.
Not one was wearing a helmet.
There is no excuse for children or adults not to be wearing a helmet, what with today’s aerodynamic and comfortable designs. In that unlucky instance where the cyclist hits the ground hard, the helmet cracks like an egg and absorbs the shock. Without the helmet your skull does the cracking.
Kids: What are you thinking? The last thing you need going through your mind is asphalt.
