    Has any one seen any kind of waterproof cover for a cycling helmet? I have seen this one;

    but I 'ain't paying £20 for one.

    The thought of perhaps trying out a shower cap had crossed my mind, albeit only briefly. I look enough of a muppet already.:sad:

    My Altura jacket doesn't have a hood, and I wouldn't like one as I fear it would restrict visability when looking over the shoulder/to the side etc. If it is chucking it down I usually put my thinsulate hat on under my helmet as it gives me some protection from a cold wet head which is nearly as bad as cold soggy feet.

    What do other people usually do - grin and bear it?

    Wet hair has never bothered me on my commute, tbh.
    How about a speedo swimming cap?!

    Why not wear a shower cap under your helmet? No-one would know.
