Anyone know of a helmet that blocks the car noise yet vents somewhat for winter?? Motocycle helmet is probably too heavy.
I ride with a guy that often puts cotton in his ears to dampen wind-noise on long road-rides. You might try that. You'd still be able to hear the cars, but it might dampen it enough to make it somewhat less annoying...
