In brief: Can't fix damaged br
She was lucky! you may never fall or hit your head, but would you take that chance? It is true that most falls from a bike cause minor injuries and often without consequences.
.But what if it is your unlucky day and you hit your head hard? Damage to the brain is not fixable! protecting it is the best chance you have..Use your common sense...Be good. Use a helmet..Tell your kids same..Good luck.
