Print More

The Bedford Police Department, in conjunction with the Bedford Rotary Club,
will host a back-to-school bicycle helmet safety event on Saturday, September 19 from 10 am until noon.

Residents are encouraged to stop by the Police Department parking lot on Mudge Way, where Bedford Rotary volunteers will distribute free, fitted helmets for child cyclists.

The free helmets, made possible through the sponsorship of the Bedford Rotary Foundation are all U.S. safety certified for Bike CPSC, and fit children ages 8-14.

A limited number of helmets will be available for those unable to attend the in-person event on September 19. Please email bedford.rotary@gmail.com to express interest.

While the Rotary club usually fits the helmets individually, this will not be possible because of  Covid restriction. To learn about fitting helmets, families can watch the following videos:
