Welcome to AnchorageBikeHelmets.org

fireman adjusts child's helmet

Did you know that on August 23rd, 2005 our city
officials passed an ordinance requiring all youth,
15 years or younger, to wear a helmet while riding
a bicycle?

But there's great news-

if your child doesn't have a bike helmet and your family can't afford to buy one,
Providence Hospital has provided the City of Anchorage with bicycle helmets.
Parents or legal guardians can stop by a designated distribution site for a FREE
helmet for their children 15 years of age or younger. Your youngster will be fitted
for their new helmet to ensure a proper fit.
