Bike & Roll, the city’s premier bike tour and bike rental company with 12 locations throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn is now offering a new helmet rental program, allowing Citi Bike customers to rent helmets for a flat rate of $3 per day or $15 per week. Customers can rent a helmet from any Bike & Roll location and return it to any Bike & Roll location, as many times as they would like during the course of the day. This allows Citi Bike customers near many of the most popular stations to pick up a helmet each time they use a bike without having to carry one around with them.
Bike & Roll’s helmet rental program makes it easier for visitors and casual Citi Bike users to access helmets for safety. They have over 1,000 helmets available and will be adding more depending on demand. This adds to Citi Bike’s and the New York City Department of Transportation’s existing efforts to encourage helmet use.
Citi Bike Annual Members receive a coupon good for $10 off one Bern, Bontrager or Nutcase helmet redeemable at any bike shop in NYC.
The Department of Transportation fits and gives away the official New York City bicycle helmet at events throughout the city. Call 311 or visit the DOT web site to find a list of upcoming events.
