This report, prepared for the Danish Cyclist Federation, describes the current status of bicycle helmet usage in Denmark according to statistics and people's attitudes on the subject. Working from publications and focus groups, we ascertained enough data to portray the bicycle-helmet situation. Our results depict a population that rarely uses bicycle helmets and does not intend to despite possible mandating laws. Our recommendation is to promote voluntary helmet-use through extensive campaigns because a mandatory law is not plausible
