Salt Lake City’s leaders know what’s good for you. Better, it seems, than you know yourself.

Fresh from banning smoking in much of the great urban outdoors, City Hall is on the verge of proposing a helmet law that would make Salt Lake City one of the few cities in the country requiring that all bicycle-riding adults don a safety helmet.

After visiting Portland last week, I returned to Salt Lake City and instantly sensed that something was missing—bicycles. It wasn’t an original observation, I mean what town can compare with Portland on bicycle friendliness, but I still felt disheartened as I rode my Schwinn downtown to run errands. Minus one guy with a mohawk who was grinning as he rode an odd-looking bicycle in circles in the middle of 200 South, I felt alone despite the fact that it was a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
