    Yep. I got 4 lids, and I choose depending on the weather and time of day. Got 3 work lids too.

    No helmet for me for my commute or any other bike riding. Of course you'll all fall off your chairs in shock at that revelation :hello:

    Well thats a matter of opinion and my Misses and Kids feel better when I wear one, so I choose to wear one so I can spend loads of cash on cycling gear without getting "The LOOK!!!!!"

    [QUOTE 1994829, member: 45"]No, but only because I've got a funny head. After about 20 minutes any helmet starts to give me a headache. Now that my new commute takes an hour I can't be done with it.[/quote]

    You know, I get a headache from my helmet too. I didn't know I had a funny head.
    But then I didn't know I had an un-ladylike large head and needed a man's helmet until that's all they could find to fit me in the shop:wacko:

    The only time I will wear a helmet is on a track.

    So are we going with 68.5% of commuting cyclists wear a helmet some or all of the time OR 52.7% cycle without a helmet some or all of the time? :thumbsup:

    Very interesting indeed...and to those who said never. Would you wear one on a fast motorbike if you didnt have to?
