Richard Branson Says Bike Helmet Saved His Life

I have a handful of friends who don't wear bicycle helmets.

They feel they don't need one.

And they certainly don't want to be told that they are required to wear them to ride a bicycle.

In Florida, adults are not required by law to wear a bike helmet.

But Richard Branson, the big Virgin Airlines tycoon man-about-town, said a bike helmet saved his life when he crashed on his bicycle.

Here's Richard in his own words.

Once, I took a tumble that broke my helmet in half. But I was fine.

Another time, I took a tumble when a truck driver opened his door into my path. I rolled on my head. Again, I was fine--save for a slightly sprained wrist.
