Whether you cycle for sport, fun or just getting around, one fact is certain: your best protection against serious head injury caused by a fall or a collision is a bicycle helmet.
While a helmet can't prevent an accident, it can reduce the risk of severe injury, disability or even death. The group most at risk are children aged five to 14. About one sixth of children's deaths each year are due to head or neck injuries that result from biking collisions or falls.
Adults must encourage children to wear helmets and set a good example by wearing them themselves – they can save young lives as well as their own.
The helmet should fit properly, be worn correctly and should be manufactured to meet strict safety standards.
Safety Approvals - In the province of New Brunswick, cyclists are required by law to wear an approved "certified" helmet. In Kouchibouguac National Park pedal for safety.
