Didn't see it TinTin but I did cross the local 'chaingang' on the way home last night - about 9/10 riders and only 2 with helmets. Why do so few 'roadies' wear helmets? Very rare you see an MTBer without one.....
Uhm, I have to say around where I bike (Holland) I have to really pay attention to see an MTBer who DOES wear a helmet... God forbid I only wore a helmet once in 18 years of riding (sorry, just don't like wearing a helmet. I know it's safe to do so).
Of course in competitions everyone wears one. Maybe some other riders in Holland wear helmets (since I saw Elev12K with one in his pics). But me and just about everyone that rides with me don't wear one. Guess we've all been lucky for the past years
And yeah, roadies with a helmet are even rarer here too... but off-road you often crash a bit "softer" than on the pavement/tarmac
