Australia is almost the only country on earth to impose mandatory helmet laws for all ages. While our nation's obesity rate has more than doubled, cycling has become unpopular. In fact, riding for everyday needs has totally disappeared and public shared bike schemes have failed. We need helmet laws brought into line with the rest of the developed world. We could solve so many issues if we did more to make riding more popular. Sadly, bike riding in Australia is now only for lycra-clad racers out for a fast ride on Sunday mornings. Normal utility riding has ceased because short-sighted mandatory helmet laws. We need to change these laws so that we give adults the right to choose just as they have in 98% of the world.
