Free Bicycle Helmuts for NYC Bike Riders Adults and Children

We have been biking to school since the return from Spring Break and it has been amazing. As long as we continue to stay away from:

-Second Avenue Subway Construction
-Older ladies walking slowly on the sidewalks

We are having a great time.

We want to give you a chance to dust off those bikes in storage and lock them up outside so they are accessible, and get yourself a new bike helmet.

Did you know you can go to the local hardware store and buy chain by the yard to lock up your bikes for about $2.00 per yard? Did you know you can buy one multiple locks that all have the same code so all keys open all locks from the same local hardware store?

New York City Department of Transportation invites you to
a Helmet Giveaway

TIME: 10:00am-2:00pm
PLACE: Carl Schurz Park

great advice we love to bike too!
Don't forget Craig's list for cheap kids bikes. Just sold 2 old ones and bought 2 'new to us' ones.
added benefit of already being assembled.
