The easiest way for a child to avoid serious injury in a bicycle related accident is to simply wear a helmet. Recognizing that cost could be a barrier, Flagstaff Biking Organization helps to raise funds to be able to offer helmets at below cost. Over the years, we’ve seen a 500% increase! In addition to offering helmets at below cost, we also offer free helmets to children whose families cannot afford the expense.
