This public service announcement is brought to you from a forever cycling newbie to other cycling newbies, or those who may just be afraid to ask.
Your helmet straps. Cut them.
It may seem harmless, and in fact it is, but that extra helmet strap fabric is made to be cut and fit to you. Don’t be like me and just tuck it in for over a year and a half. No, you are much wiser than I am.
Simply follow these easy steps for the perfect helmet straps.
2 – Cut.
3 – Burn. Don’t hold it in one spot, but move in a slow and steady fashion for probably 10 seconds total. (Thank you Chicken Face for being the hand model.)
4 – Rejoice! You are one step closer to that yellow jersey. Now if only I can learn to change a flat tire…
Happy Running and Cycling!
