    Helmet lifespan?

    Thread Starter: HEsch

    How long would you anticipate a helmet to last, sans crashes or impact? Do you replace on a time schedule (ie, every 5 years), or kms travelled (I don't know, but, maybe 25 or 50,000kms?). Or use some other form of measurement to determine a new one is needed?

      Anybody got room on the back for a young lass? Her mum passed from breast cancer a couple years ago and is pretty keen on attending. She'd need picking up/dropping off from the city, or could potentially travel some ways to you. PM me if you're keen to help out.

      Does she have her own gear? If no-one else puts up their hand (she'd need to have her gear), I can help, but I'm also on escort duties for the ride, hence preferring for someone else to assist.

      Is this still on given the weather? and are you aware that usually this carpark is reasonably busy on a Sunday morning as markets are held here every Sunday? (hopefully the markets will be fairly quiet tomorrow given the poor weather).

      Market is in the main car park. We meet in the side one, which has access to and from College Rd.
