    Kinda OT: wet weather riding - head gear

    With the desire to ride more I'm riding in the wet... short question - what are you wearing under your helmet to stay somewhat dry?
    Necessity for me - since I'm hair challenged - during the summer I wear some form of bandana to prevent sunburn.. as it gets cooler I'll wear a light beanie but when it's wet

    wanting to stay somewhat warmer & reasonably dry?

    Thanks for reading

    For winter riding I wear a skater/BMX style helmet. More coverage and less vents. I wear a toque under it but for wet weather you could just duct tape the vents closed on the inside.

    Cycling caps were invented for this...the peak keeps the rain out of the eyes too. And for the winter, I have a cafe Domestique cycling cap with ear flaps
    Strava made me do it....

    And only in black.

    Another option is the Buff,

    If you hurt in your efforts and suffer painful dings. Then you are doing it right.

    When it rains, I wear a cycling cap, as many cyclists have before me.
    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.
