If you’re a road cyclist or mountain biker, chances are pretty high that you know someone who’s been seriously hurt or killed in a bike accident. Unfortunately, sadly, and tragically, this is part of the sport. But there are steps you can take to decrease your chances of getting hurt if you crash, such as by wearing helmets that are CPSC-certified. The video below by the Athlete Recovery Fund offers some pretty grisly tangibles as to why this is the case. (At one point in the video, a rider asks the Athlete Recovery Fund’s director of helmet creation, “Is that survivable?” and he answers, “No. You’re dead.”) Yikes!
