Question by Exiled Mainer: Will a fleece ear band fit under a bicycle helmet?
My son’s ears (and face) get cold on his bike ride to school. I’m trying to find accessories (besides good gloves, which he has) to help keep him warm and motivate him to bike. Thanks for your advice from experience.

Yes, a fleece ear band will fit under his helmet. Helmets are designed to maximize ventilation for the hot summer. That can result in too much cold air on your head in the winter. When it gets cold out, I wear a fleece lined helmet liner. You can get other cold weather head/ear/face protective clothing, all available at your local bike shops. If there is one close to you, Performance Bike Shops usually have good prices on clothing.
