That “no helmets” requirement struck me as odd. I don’t really agree with laws mandating that adults wear helmets, but a lot of people choose to, and why shouldn’t they be able to make that choice?

It’s your event and you can certainly exclude whomever you like; I’m not trying to say you need to be inclusive of everyone. But if the objective is to demonstrate to more people how safe and useful cycling can be and how many routes are available to them, it seems strange to say that people shouldn’t be biking unless they’re comfortable biking without a helmet. I would imagine the majority of people who don’t bicycle now will probably choose to wear a helmet when they first try it.
