Is it illegal to ride a bike without a helmet?

It depends on where in the world you are. Some countries you don't even need a helmet to ride a motorcycle. Generally the laws only apply when on the road or cycleway.

For anyone that values their lives wear a helmet. A relatively small bump to the head can cause serious brain damage and/or death.

There are some people in the world that should be encouraged not too. (my opinion)

Many jurisdictions in North America have legislation aimed at minority aged youth. In Alberta, Canada, youth under 16 are required. I have cycled for 30 years and have worn a helmet for the last 23 - had an accident where I sunk my front wheel into a mud hole that catapulted me over the handle-bars with my feet strapped into old-school toe clips. The bike was sucked out of the mud by my feet and I had the rear axle nut strike me just above the temple. I bought my first helmet later that day. It may not be illegal for you to ride without one, but it may also save your life...

I've ridden road and mountain bikes in all weather and on terrain that most people wouldn't walk down. I've gone freeway speeds on my road bike and sideswiped cactus on a mountain bike trail.

The last helmet I destroyed? I was simply playing around in the neighborhood when my front wheel washed out on something, slamming my temple into the asphalt so fast I didn't even let go of the handlebars.

I got a concussion and some road rash, and the helmet was crushed on one side and had a crack running all the way around to the other side.
