Reflective bicycle helmet cover for winter riding

A Jandd waterproof bicycle helmet cover, an early Christmas gift from Jonathan, had me set for an afternoon ride during a winter rainstorm.

With its yellow-green color and reflective strips in both the front and back, the helmet cover really boosts my visibility.

And with plastic rain jacket, pants, reflective vest and waterproof boots, my riding gear is every bit as comprehensive as cold, wet weather dictates.

Non-cyclists routinely volunteer to me that it’s too cold or too wet to ride, but perhaps what they really mean is that it’s too cold or too wet for them.

Jonathan and I made a choice in June 2014, to become a car-free household. With that choice came a commitment to travel by bicycle, public transit or on-foot. And now whenever and wherever we go, we reaffirm that commitment.
