Blue Krewe has distributed over 1,000 free helmets to New Orleanians. Thanks to the support of Healthy Blue, Blue Krewe is excited to celebrate this major milestone to address barriers to riding bicycles by expanding access to free bike safety gear.
Blue Krewe recognizes that safety is a critical component of biking, and access to proper protective gear is essential for creating a culture of safe cycling. To address this need, Blue Krewe launched the Blue Bikes Helmet Giveaway, which provides free helmets to individuals who use Blue Bikes or who are in need of a helmet to ride their own bicycles.
Here’s where the helmets have ended up:
The success of the Blue Bikes Helmet Giveaway has been possible thanks to the collaborative support of the Helmet Giveaway Sponsor Healthy Blue, as well as community partners, such as Bike Easy.
