Get your free bike helmet this Sunday!
On Sunday, May 15th, from 1-4pm, Councilman Kalman Yeger and the New York City Department of Transportation will provide free bike helmets at Gravesend Park, located at 18th Avenue and 56th Street.
Helmets distributed at the event, which is sponsored by Councilman Yeger in partnership with New York City’s Departments of Transportation and Parks, will be individually selected and customized.
“Anyone who shows up can get a bike helmet, but they need to show up in person,” said Councilman Yeger. “That’s because the helmet will be customized for the rider’s use, by trained DOT personnel.”
Helmets are available to all, children and adults alike. However, children will need a parent or legal guardian to sign a form in order to participate. Helmets are distributed on a first-come first-served basis.
“These helmets will go fast,” said Councilman Yeger. “Sunday’s helmet distribution is a great way to kick off the summer. I urge my neighbors to come early, enjoy our great park, get your helmet and let’s get the summer started!”

Great idea. Hopefully, he has publicized the event among yeshivos and beis yaakovs in BP so that as many young men and women will come out and obtain the helmets.
HaShem in his infinite wisdom created man with a skull to protect his brains, just sayin.
Is riding a bicycle on the streets of Brooklyn (and in particular, Boro Park) ever safe? Getting smushed by large motor vehicle will do more than give you a headache.
He could get elected governor if he gave out pepper spray, combat helmets and bullet proof vests.
Or maybe ask his fellow democrats gov hocus pocus Hochul, Eric ” I AM THE MAYOR!” Adams, Cousins and Heastie from Albany, and Consigliere Al Sharpton to go out into THEIR communities AND TELL THEM TO STOP THE VIOLENCE
This government hand-out is unfair competition for bicycle shops who sell the helmets. Parents should buy the helmets when they buy the bicycles.
