When should you replace your bicycle helmet?

When should you replace your bicycle helmet? If you've been involved in a crash, then you should replace it immediately. There may be damage to the internal structure that is not evident from the outside, but could affect the helmet's ability to protect your head.

Otherwise, the time frame for replacing your bike helmet is affected by many factors, including age, exposure to sunlight and heat, storage conditions, and more. Consumer Reports talked to their own testers, manufacturers, and others to come up some recommendations in this article:

When You Really Need to Replace Your Bike Helmet

One of their top helmet recommendations is one of our best-sellers here at Century Cycles, the Giro Register MIPS!

Medina Sunday Road Bike Rides - 2022 Schedule


Century Cycles invites road cyclists to join us for our monthly Sunday Group Road Bike Rides at our Medina location! Your own bicycle, helmet, and flashing taillight are required. No pre-registration is necessary; however, you will need to sign a waiver. The ride will take place on the 3rd Sunday of each month. Start time is 8:00am.

The rides are moderately paced, averaging anywhere between 13-16mph. This group will be riding 20 miles and is a no-drop ride (meaning that nobody is left behind if they can't always keep up).

You'll have help in case you get a flat tire or anything, but you should have what you need to be self-sufficient: water/sports drink, spare tube, tire levers, pump, and a mobile phone. Cathy Kasper is your ride leader.

Sunday, May 15
Sunday, June 19
Sunday, July 17
Sunday, August 21
Sunday, September 18

All rides start at 8:00am.
