We strongly suggest wearing a helmet on all bike tours, and, for hygiene and safety reasons, that it's your personal helmet.
That said, some tour operators rent or sell helmets. Check the "Bike Rentals" and "Prices" details on the Dates and Prices tab on each tour page for additional details.
An alternative option is to purchase a helmet upon arrival from a local bike shop.
Here are some packing suggestions if you bring your helmet from home:
- Pack it in your purse or backpack. If you have a bigger bag this works great. A helmet is a little bulky but generally doesn't weigh much. And it's a great place to store any delicate snacks while you're traveling.
- Pack it in your suitcase. Again, it's lightweight, albeit a bit bulky. We suggest rolling up smaller items, like socks and undies and filling up your helmet. Try to take advantage of all the space!
