Currently, I don't ride with a helmet most of the time because I'm dumb and I seem to enjoy mocking Murphy's Law.
It's actually mostly because I haven't fallen off of Lacey in 2 years, even back when she would try her hardest to get me off, so I'm starting to feel dangerously safe. However, whenever I ride on the road, on the trail, or when I go to camp and ride there, I always wear my helmet. There are too many trees/roots/asphalt just asking me to bash my head into them and I don't want to test Murphy THAT much.
But yeah, it's basically cuz I'm dumb and evidently want to die. Hahaha
Also, I've fallen while wearing my helmet enough times that I'm pretty sure I really should get a new one. So, possibly if I was wearing my helmet it wouldn't do me much good...
