Wearing a helmet is basic in cycling, but many don’t know how to do it properly. So here are some guidelines on how to wear a bicycle helmet properly.
How to Choose a Bicycle Helmet
Helmets today are more easier to adjust and more comfortable to wear compared to several years ago. There are many less costly options for all ages. Just keep in mind these helpful tips when purchasing one.
• Look for a seal of approval from organizations such as CPSC of Consumer Product Safety Commission, ANSI or American National Standards Institute, or Snell Memorial Foundation.
• Be sure the helmet fits snugly. It must not move more than one each in any direction — back and front or side to side. Use the sizing pads to help you make the fit more secure. Choose one with a ponytail port if you have long hair.
