Cycle HelmetsRecommended cycle helmets for your London to Paris bike ride
When it comes to working out what cycle helmets are best for your London to Paris cycle, you should consider how you intend to cycle the route, be it off-road, on gravel or on-road as there are different types of helmets that are designed specifically for their use.
The first priority with any cycle helmet is the fit. This is critical to get right. Choose a helmet to match your head size and that have multiple adjustment options.
To find your size, simply measure the circumference of your head about two finger widths above your eyebrows using a tape measure. Your helmet shouldn’t be so loose that it wobbles around; nor should it be so tight. A nice, snug feeling is what you’re looking for – after all, you’re going to be getting a lot of use out of it.
Some helmets offer additional multi-directional impact protection and often cost a little more, although they make them a worthy investment.
There are a huge number of cycling helmets available to choose from. Here is a shortlist of some of the best cycle helmets for both men and women that come highly recommended by other London to Paris cyclists:
