Cycling Safety

It is strongly recommended that all cyclists, irrespective of age, wear a CSA, SNELL, ANSI, ASTM, BSI, CPSC or SAA approved bicycle helmet. However, it is the law for cyclists under the age of 18 to wear a helmet. An approved bicycle helmet can greatly reduce the risk of head injury in the event of a fall or collision. The best helmet is one that is safety approved, fits properly and is worn correctly. The approved helmet should cover the top of your forehead. Straps should be flat against your face, coming to a V-shape just underneath your ear lobe. If the helmet is tipped too far forward or backward, it will not protect you properly. You should also be able to fit one finger between your chin and the strap, making it easy to fasten and release.
