As an avid bicyclist - yes, there are a few of us that like both the human 
powered experience and give generously to Our Lady of Internal Combustion - 
I can pass along that the same rule of thumb applies for bike helmets.  Five 
years and you should toss them.  I take great care not to drop mine on the 
ground or abuse it, but the "foam" that absorbs the shock does get brittle 
over time.  Bike helmets, if used, probably spend many more hours in the sun 
than our racing helmets.  In my average year I would guess the helmet is 
outdoors at least 150 hours a year while riding.
