Your head is like a giant radiator! Proper cycling headwear is key.

Cycling Headwear from the beginning - the Head

Cycling headwear is often thought of as only a helmet. If the weather is just beginning to turn cool or it is cool with a chance of rain you might need more protection. There really isn't anything more dismal biking than a wet, cold head. If you want a little bit of protection, you might want to consider just a .

Even if you are they type that never wears a hat when you go out think about a couple statistics that may surprise you. Around 13% of your blood volume at any one time is in your head, your body can loose 30% of the heat generated through your head. Your head is like a giant radiator. This is due to both the very vascular nature of your scalp and the exposed nature of the surface of your head.

It is very important if you want your blood to be the right temperature to keep your head properly protected. Remember, the brain controls everything! Cool your brain down and thinking can become lethargic, reaction times can slow and you are looking at a better chance of a bicycle accident.

Don't worry about looking like a dork. Everyone riding in this kind of weather is going to look the same. They all know you are as addicted to cycling as they are and there won't be any comments. As a plus, most people won't be able to recognize you if you are wearing a lot of gear on your head anyway. Your adventures outside on your bike can be very enjoyable even when it gets really cold if you are dressed right and the proper cycling headwear is an important piece of that.
