      You post title is pure B.S. You don’t wear a helmet in Delaware to avoid getting your head crushed in by wayward antelopes! You wear a helmet because you are afraid, but then you should also wear a helmet when you leave your house or take a shower, a lot more people die those ways than they do from not wearing a helmet while biking. Come on you are supposed to be encouraging people to ride, not scaring them!
