I got lost somewhere along the way. Was there a conclusion somewhere that I have missed or just a bunch of anecdotes ?

Probably as close to a conclusion as you'll get:

“Making people feel safer on bikes should not mean equipping them with high-vis and reflective helmets,” says Jack Harris, owner of London’s Tally Ho! Cycle Tours. “We need infrastructure that allows a broader cross-section of society to get onto a bike.” The places that are serious about encouraging cycling as a safe, accessible and pleasant mode of transport have some tough decisions to make about vulnerable users, including cyclists, in the allocation of urban space.
Mandatory helmet law?
"An unjustified and unethical imposition on a healthy activity."
