NCDOT Provides Free Bicycle Helmets
Applications are open to receive free bicycle helmets from the N.C. Department of Transportation.
The annual giveaway by NCDOT’s Integrated Mobility Division is meant to encourage more children to wear helmets. Organizations across the state can participate in the Bicycle Helmet Initiative to distribute to children in need.
Organizations can apply online at NCDOT’s Bicycle Helmet Initiative webpage to receive free helmets. The deadline for applications is Feb. 9. Applicants may request 25, 50, 75 or 100 helmets and are encouraged to partner with a local law enforcement agency, parks and recreation department, school, churche, or other organization to host bike safety events. The helmets will be distributed in the spring in advance of National Bike/Walk to School Day in May.
