It’s getting cold out there for much of the country however many of you are still finding ways to get out and enjoy the outdoors. Hearinglikeme.com has a great advice column on how to best enjoy cycling with hearing loss. The tips include:
- When you are cycling alone, make sure you do everything you can to be as aware as possible of the environment
- Reduce wind noise by wearing a headband or head sweat cap cover over the hearing aids and under the helmet.
- Choose your cycle helmet carefully. Try different helmets to get the best fit and make sure there is space for your hearing aids so they sit comfortably and don’t push the hearing aids into the side of your head.
