Little is there as protection between the ground and your body if you are thrown over your bike’s handlebars. Always wear a helmet, because it can be the only thing that protects you from injuries. Yet it is technically not a law in many Washington cities, Bellingham included. A car has seat belts, airbags, and other safety features that go into the engineering in case of a crash. However, a bike lacks these. Chances are, if you have wrecked your bike and gone over the handlebars, you were injured and might be facing a long road to recovery.
