Helmets can prevent 85 percent of bicycle related head and brain injuries.
In 2020, 938 bicyclists died on U.S. roads due to accidents, which is why it is important to always wear your helmet.
Bicyclists with the most fatalities are individuals between the ages of 60 and 64. Riders between the ages of 15 and 20 have the highest bicycle-related injury rate.
Cyclists of all ages at all times, should wear a properly-fitted, approved helmet.
