I've used black duct tape to cover up the ventilation holes. Works pretty well and they aren't that noticeable for a temp fix before you get covers.

Any health benefits to long rides?

My rides are usually 70 minutes at 15.5mph 4-5 times a week. I'm not too concerned about becoming faster. Are there any health benefits that I'm not getting by not doing long rides?
