am almost 68 years old as I compose this article. I started riding bicycles when I was about 5 or 6 years old. To the best of my knowledge bicycle helmets didn’t exist anytime during my childhood including my teen years. At least I never heard of them. The year 1970 seems to appear when trying to do a quick research concerning bicycle helmets. I was 23 years old then. Anyway, like most people my age, I didn’t wear a helmet while bicycling as they just weren’t around then. Over the last many years I believe strongly in wearing them on a bicycle and I do if and when I ride a bike (which is rare nowadays). I stumbled upon this YouTube video about how these helmets are made and found it interesting. So I thought I would share it here.
