A cyclist, who was left with a broken neck after being thrown off his bike, said his helmet saved his life.
Gareth, from Cardiff, hit a traffic cone in the road during the Long Course Weekend in Tenby, before hitting his head as he ”cart-wheeled” down the road.
The crash completely destroyed his bike, which was made out of strong carbon, and his helmet was broken into pieces.
Gareth was left with a concussion and a broken neck from the impact but said it could have been ”much worse” if he wasn’t wearing a helmet.
He is now so focusing on raising awareness of safety equipment and highlighting the importance of wearing a helmet.
“The amount of kids I see in the streets riding a bike or a scooter with no helmet. I really think it should be law that when you buy a bike you have to buy a helmet too.”
