You may be interested to know that it is not compulsory to wear a cycle helmet when cycling on Britain’s roads. I was surprised by this as the UK roads are very dangerous and accidents and injuries to cyclists are sadly not an uncommon occurrence.Head injuries are often the most common cycling accident claim - particularly when the rider was not wearing a helmet.
