Editor:

As an avid cyclist I was dumbstruck by the photo on the front page of Tuesday's Daily Sun Local News. Did I really see a bicycle helmet in the basket of the man cycling? Was anyone in the photo wearing a helmet? Not sure how that helmet will protect his head when it hits the concrete, exploding like a watermelon. But, hey, his helmet is just fine. Bike helmets are like seat belts in cars — they save lives.

Shame on the Daily Sun for printing this photo to accompany an article headlining Adventure Cycling, an organization where every photo of a cyclist on a bike includes a bike helmet perched securely atop their head. Our bike club, Coastal Cruisers, will not allow a cyclist without a helmet to ride with us.
