Burying has a positive impact on your ecological footprint (on the long term). I'm not quite sure for a stay in the hospital. When you don't commute on your bike being in the hospital is also good (from an ecological point of view). The trip to the hospital (by car) is very bad, but is equivalent to the trip to the bike shop to buy the helmet (with car, because you do not have a helmet yet). You normally don't save a trip to the hospital per helmet, so overall impact of helmet buying vs getting injured and being transported to the hospital comes out negative on ecological footprint.

comment What tips do you have for making temporary “get me home” repairs?
This got me home (or at least to a road) too many times :-( When the bike, or myself, is beyond repair.

comment What type of brakes are best for mountain bike racing?
It's not my brakes. If conditions start to be muddy, the disc brakes start making noice. Also the blocks don't last as long.

I have a special bike-cell-phone. The cheapest I could find, this way I don't have to take my smartphone with me on my MTB.
