Free Bike Helmets to Be Distributed In Midwood

BROOKLYN (Hamodia) -

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

The event will be held at Kolbert Playground, on Ave. L between East 17th and 18th streets, from 12 until 3:30 p.m. Helmets will be distributed while supplies last, with recipients getting professionally fitted.

“This event is about protecting people,” Greenfield said. “It’s simple: Wearing a helmet is the easiest way for bicyclists to protect themselves on the road.”
