I also think what you look like has nothing to do with this topic. If someone is fat or doesn't look the way you like, why should they not be able to enjoy this "basically" independent hobby/skill?
The one comment above makes it sound like if you are ugly or fat you should stay off the bike, or at least out of the eye shot of others who might be offended.
Another reason for helmets though, we all look better with them on!
The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all of fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomanical, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. - Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion
