Free Bike Helmets to Be Distributed in Boro Park

BROOKLYN -

Councilman David Greenfield is partnering with the NYC Department of Transportation to distribute free bike helmets this Sunday in Boro Park.

The event will be held at the 18th Ave Park between 12 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.

Helmets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Six hundred helmets will be on hand, with recipients getting professionally fitted. A parent or legal guardian is required to sign a waiver for all children under age 18.

“Bike riding is a fun and healthy activity for children and adults alike,” Greenfield said. “All cyclists should wear a helmet to reduce the risk of serious injury, and it is especially important that every child and teenager has a quality helmet that has been properly fitted for them.”
