And this is a reason why I did not vote for Amanda Fritz. "it seems to me that providing helmets might encourage some to try cycling" runs counter to pretty much every study out there on helmet use.
I'm not against helmet use, I just would rather our city council actually familiarize themselves with the issue and the research before voting. If you want to argue safety, fine - but saying that helmet use might *encourage* some to cycle runs counter to the evidence.
