Do you ride around neighborhood or take bike in car to someplace to ride?
Do you take bike on vacations/
Do you wear a helmet.

I ride around home, sometimes take bike to ride on Boardwalk, and i don't wear a helmet.

    my first love had a metal plate in his head from a bike accident as a child. He was riding down a hill and the chain fell off of his coaster brake bike. There was a car coming up the hill with parked cars on either side of the road. His choice was to hit the moving car or a parked car. He wisely chose the parked car. Of course kids didn't wear bike helmets back then.

    so when you hear adults talk about how 'we never wore helmets'...some changes ARE for the better.

    as much as I dislike the helmet, I wear it. It keeps my hair out of my face too!

    To all who have bikes, I wish you well, but you need to wear a helmet. Have fun.

    there is no place near the house to ride. Our subdivision is less than 30 houses, one street. And we are off of a very busy state hwy.

    I keep my bike at the office and ride to the Y for my workouts or ride around town. Most of the areas have bike lanes. I do wear a helmet (promised DH and my dad that I would).

    yesterday I rode for an hour. I love riding my bike because I generate enough of a breeze to keep from getting too hot. I usually don't realize how sweaty I am until I stop riding and discover my clothes are drenched!

    I do take my bike on vacations. I take it to girl's week every year and when DH and I go to the beach, we both take our bikes.

    If we are just going to visit his family in KY, I take the dogs to the park for a run/walk to get my exercise. Although they do have a great neighborhood for bike riding.

    Normally I ride around the neighborhood, but this morning I hit the backroads for a 12-miler. I don't wear a helmet. My bike will fit in the back of my Jeep, but I have to really adjust the seats and then my mirrors are useless.....so I normally don't take it anywhere.

    I ride sometimes. I wear a helmet mainly because my kids are required to wear helmets.
