I'm not convinced by the case for mandatory helmet legislation, however. Too often, there seems to have been a drop-off in the uptake of cycling following such legislation, and with fewer cyclists on the road, the ones who are left tend to be less safe (as would appear to have happened in New Zealand, for instance http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22327159).
What I'm much more convinced of is the case for better cycle path provision. Where the cycle path is clearly separate from the road, everyone is safer. Also, subjectively, some, if by no means all, of the new cycle superhighways that have been installed in London make a very refreshing change from the more dangerous territory of the roads themselves. (Others could have been better designed).
