Here is the perfect example of why you need to wear a helmet while riding a bike. Peyton went over the bars of her track bike and straight to her head while riding in New Haven. She was knocked out cold and left with a concussion! Luckily, Peyton is alright...no broken bones...and she is back on her fixed gear bike already which is burly! I know in the BMX scene its "not cool" to wear your helmet. Personally, I'd rather look "un-cool" riding at the skatepark than look like Mike Tyson beat my a$$!
*Thanks to Shawn Hebrank for the photo. A special thanks to Peyton for being a good sport and letting me post the painful pic of her. GET WELL!
