Students will provide their own ASTM approved helmets or else pay a $10 helmet fee per session
Due to hygiene and ensuring proper fit it is best to have a personal helmet. Helmets now have dates that require replacement every 5 years due to foam padding and adhesive breakdown. Helmets can be purchased on-line at Dover Saddlery.com or SmartPak.com. Measurements of circumference of head are required for sizing. Soft brims or breakaway helmet brims, and internal harness in helmet are required at SRF. We recommend the brands Ovation, Tipperary, IRH, Troxel with secure harness inside helmet. Oval shaped helmets are available. A good fit is measured by two fingers above the eye brows to the helmet rim in the front, and a snug fit all around so that when thee rider shakes head the helmet does not move. A good fitting helmet is essential and will stay in place and protect you the way it is designed.

Lessons will be cancelled if Winter Temperatures are below 25 degrees, or if danger of roads freezing and ice advisory.
In the summer lessons will be cancelled if temperature and heat index are above 95.
