HEADS UP NOLA

Sign the Pledge. Protect Your Head.

Heads Up Banner

Helmets significantly reduce the risk of head trauma and dental injuries. Stay safe by wearing a helmet when biking or during any activity where there is a risk of head trauma.

Protect your head! Sign the pledge by October 6 for your chance to receive a free helmet. The first 100 people to sign the pledge who would like a helmet will receive a voucher for a fitted bike helmet* from our partner, Bicycle World of Louisiana.

Helmets may be picked up on Monday, October 10 or Tuesday, October 11 from 4 PM to 7 PM at our Metairie office (4420 Conlin St, Suite 302, Metairie, LA 70006). A representative from Bicycle World of Louisiana will be on-site to ensure the helmet is properly fitted.

Join Us at Tour de Jefferson 2022!

*Limit one free helmet per person
