People receiving helmets are required to learn who to properly fit the helmet. Attendees will also have a chance to learn about bike shares like New York City’s Citibike system.

Those over 18 need to sign a waiver for their helmets. For those under 18, a parent or guardian must attend and sign a waiver.

Vision Zero is an initiative of Mayor de Blasio which seek aims to reduce the number of preventable pedestrian fatalities.
