You may have noticed your co-worker with a bright green Nice Ride bike helmet. Where did it come from? How can you get your own?
Thanks to generous funding from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota, Nice Ride's title sponsor, we are giving away more than 10,000 bright green helmets over the next two years. The helmets meet the US Consumer Product Safety Commission guidelines and the American Society for Testing and Manufacturing (ASTM) F1447 specifications. The helmets are brightly colored with Nice Ride green and carry both the Nice Ride and Blue Cross logos.
Nice Ride Minnesota will be at many events throughout the Nice Ride season and plans to have a limited number of helmets at each event. How do you get your own? If you are a Nice Ride member, come to the front of the line, present your Nice Ride key or unlocking code, and we will take care of you! Not a Nice Ride member? Why not!? Become a member today! Otherwise, you might have to wait in line to get your helmet. Some events also request you play some fun and games to receive the helmet. It just depends on the event! For all events, please keep the following in mind:
Where can you get one? Stay tuned to our Facebook page for notification about our events, or subscribe to the Nice Ride weekly newsletter to learn more about great events throughout the Twin Cities. If you can't find an event near you, you can also stop in at the Commuter Connection in downtown Minneapolis.
