The helmets available to rent while you cycle off into the Lake Districts countryside are all top quality. Manufactured to comply with British standards, we have reliable names such as Kask, Cannondale, Proviz, Specialised ,Kali, Bell and Mavic. All are very light and comfortable to wear, with a range of sizes from small to extra large.
Is it compulsory to wear a helmet in the UK? No it is not but I do recommend it so to do.
Why? This was emphasised recently when an experienced cyclist skidded on some black ice and was saved from severe head injuries by her helmet. The helmet smashed to absorb the impact and the cyclist got away with a black eye and a grazed forehead.
One never knows what is around the corner as there is always a risk with any activity.
