It's the LAW, Wear a Helmet!     

Every year in the United States, bicycle-related deaths number about 900 and emergency rooms treat almost 500,000 people for bicycle-related injuries, most to the head. Bike mishaps in the U.S. send more children to the ER than any other sport. Proper use of a bike helmet can reduce the risk of head injury by as much as 88%. In North Carolina, children under the age of 16 riding a bike or as a passenger on a bike are required by law to wear a helmet.

Regardless of your age, it's wise to follow these bicycle safety tips!
