My little commute to work takes me down a fairly fast road on the way in...and boy am I getting brain freeze :lol:
What do you wear under your helmet in cold weather...without looking too geek-like :?

I use a headscarf type thing under my helmet, and it seems to work. I also have used a roadie cap to good effect.

Endura thermal "skullcap". Along with neoprene overshoes this was one of those essential items for all-winter commuting that I really wouldn't have lasted without...

http://www.endura.co.uk/Product.aspx?de ... &prod_id=6

Unlike the neoprene overshoes though you can wear that without being completely dressed up in fancy gear and not look a complete idiot :-)

I have to say, I've always found Endura gear incredibly well designed, comfortable and ridiculously long lasting. "Designed/made in Scotland" definitely shows ;-)

Cheers,

AJ
