Fwd: RC: Helmet recommendations?

Hi Jen: If you look at early pictures of AERC riders hardly anyone wore a 
Helmet. My first attempt was a bicycle helmet. Then I had a styrofoam 
Helmet! It was  cool but I doubt it would have protected my head from a 
crash. Then Lexington & Troxel started coming out with selections suitable 
for Endurance riders. You need to go into a store that has a large selection 
and start trying them on. I have gone thru several and now the Troxel Dakota 
is my choice. It has saved my life twice. Good luck Hope
