I hate being right

Back in July I wrote here:

[Helmets] "I know personally that head-bonking bicycle accidents don't happen only on busy streets, or at high speeds, or on days when it's not so hot that helmets are a bit uncomfortable. I've seen people fall over, in ways that could easily have cracked their skulls, while getting on their bicycles... So if you ride, wear your helmet. Every time, all the time."

My friend Alistair recently discovered how right I was. Good thing he was wearing his helmet. (Though knee pads would have been good too, I guess.)
