For anyone on the list that might be involved in writing/updating merit
badge books (and Safety MB counselors, too):
I was looking at the bicycle safety section of the Safety MB book (pp.
22-23), and was somewhat astounded that nowhere does it say to wear a
helmet! I'm somewhat astounded that the book left out what just about all
responsible cyclists consider the MOST important cycling safety rule.
Also rule #4 in the list (have a working horn or bell) seems to be of
limited use. In this day of motorists driving around with their windows up
and the radio blasting, who's going to hear a bicycle bell?
