I've always worn a helmet. Good thing too 'cuz once I UPD'd so hard that I could not prevent my head from contacting the tarmac. Even with the helmet I was a little bit loopy for a minute.
Other than that, I've let my injuries determine my safety gear.
I jammed my wrist once. Then I started wearing wrist guards.
Sprained my right ankle. Then I started wearing an ankle brace.
Tore a bunch of skin off the palms of my hands. Gloves.
Once I get a good pedal bite on my shins I'm sure the shin guards won't be far behind.
Two kinds of people in the world. Proactive or reactive. Looks like I'm the reactive type.
