16 mile out-back ride. Nice autumn afternoon.

Thanks for the helmet tips!

I only buy Snell-certified helmets. My Snell bicycle helmet was difficult to find ten years ago, and is due for replacement because it spent way too long baking in the race car hauler.

BMW trivia - The BMW-branded flip-face helmets sold in the 1980's at their motorcycle dealerships (made by Schuberth?) were *not* Snell-certified, which is why I never owned one.....

Giro Aether. It's light (a plus) and aero (a plus, but more of a benefit for people faster than me) but most importantly, it's so well ventilated. It just pours air over my head, which is huge for comfort and basically prevents sweat from dripping on my face. Would highly recommend

I am very well aware of this "trivia." because that's exactly what it is.

I've own BMW and Schubert helmets exclusively. My current BMW System 6 and C3 were actually black listed in the USA because the company refused to pay the very expensive SNELL license. The helmets exceeded the very strict German TÜV testing and was accepted in every other country. I can't remember the last time a sticker protected my head...

Apologies for the Cycling thread hijack.

I had a BMW clamshell helmet in the early 90's. It did its job when I had a crash. Big scars on the helmet that would have been on my head. I don't remember why I didn't get another one (cost maybe), but I ended up replacing it with a Shoei helmet.
