It's obvious that these gentlemen are all experienced cyclists.

Oh, wait, I get it, this is a bicycle safety campaign poster, showing all the ways you can wear a helmet incorrectly.

Hilarious.

Nice helmet, you should probably buckle it

Is cycling really so dangerous that we must wear our helmets properly secured and positioned while posing for photos?

I prefer to view the straps as analogous to hair styles: mutton chops, balding, and comb-over.

Either don't wear a helmet or wear it correctly. Anything else is silly, akin to holding the seat belt across your chest without buckling it. (Although I like the "no straps look" on the gentleman in the middle. At least he was thinking a little bit about appearance.)

It's funny that Grey wouldn't actually ride the bike, indicating that he doesn't know how to ride one.

This is one of the ways bike riding is discouraged in America. The "cycling is dangerous" crowd has gotten so much traction (with the help of well-meaning folks) that it's practically political suicide to appear in public on a bicycle without a helmet.

What if Gray fell over?!? What if a child saw him on a bike without a helmet.

Meanwhile, parents spend an hour or two a day endangering their children on the nation's roadways and don't think twice about it. Car helmets for kids!
