Bike Helmets SAFETY RATINGS

On our recent Chattanooga ride, we had a bicyclist go head down on the pavement.  The bicyclist's choice of a good helmet was protection against serious injury.  Today, I received from Consumer Reports its safety rating for helmets which I am attaching.  SAFE helmets don't have to be costly; and, costly helmets aren't always that safe.  See the CR review rating below:
