On the road or serious rides = helmet. Pootling around in this heat = no helmet.

XXXL padded shorts.

You get the pad, but the wind whistles up your flappy legs.

I had a look at the local accident statistics. Saw that walking up a flight of stairs is actually more risky, wrt head injuries, than riding a bicycle.

Decided not to wear a helmet when walking up the stairs.

I'm a firm believer in wearing a helmet - I've worn one since the mid 80's when I got serious about cycling in the city. The new ones are much more comfortable and well vented now. I don't think I'd spend a fiver on one, but you don't need to spend a huge amount to get a decent quality one. Personally, I'm buying ones with the MIPS system because I want to protect my brain as best as I can from concussion after having a co-worker deal with one recently.
