Supervisor Terra Lawson-Remer Hosted Successful Bike Helmet Giveaway For National Bike Month

News Date

More than 100 children and adults from Carlsbad and surrounding areas gathered at the La Costa Paloma Community Room Wednesday evening, eager to participate in a bike safety event hosted by San Diego County Supervisor Terra-Lawson-Remer. Children left the event equipped with shiny brand-new bike helmets, courtesy of Scripps Health, along with a greater awareness of safe cycling practices.

Supervisor Lawson-Remer organized the event in response to a concerning increase in e-bike-related injuries across the region, bringing together partners including Scripps and the San Diego Bicycle Coalition to share critical bicycle safety insights, discuss the latest laws, and to get free helmets in the hands of more riders.

“Biking has always been a great way to get around and explore our community,” said Supervisor Lawson-Remer, Vice Chair of the Board of Supervisors. “Last night's event was one way we’re doing all we can to empower both young riders and adults with essential safety knowledge — paving the way for safer roads where everyone can travel confidently.”

The session featured engaging presentations on bike safety, delivered by local experts, providing attendees with valuable knowledge and practical tips to navigate roadways safely. In addition to the Scripps helmet distribution, representatives from the San Diego Bicycle Coalition were on hand to offer guidance and resources to promote safe cycling habits among families.

The event was planned to coincide with National Bike Month and SANDAG’s Bike Anywhere Day, which encourage bicycling as a healthy and sustainable means of transportation. For more tips and information on bike safety, see the San Diego Bicycle Coalition’s resources page.

The next Bike Helmet Giveaway will be June 12 in Point Loma at 6 p.m. RSVP HERE
