Giveaway: Bell Bicycle Helmet

Cynthia Dermody

Congratulations to bandk4ever, the winner of the girls' Bell Panda Helmet!

I'm so excited to dig the bikes out of the basement now that the weather where I live is looking up! My kids love tooling around the high school parking lot or on the nature/bike train near our house.

Gotta get out and buy my own bike so I can join 'em.

In the spirit of springtime, I'm giving away one new, cute Bell bike helmet -- with True FitTM technology. I've tried this technology. It's awesome. Do you know that a third of kids wear their helmets incorrectly? This helmet aims to prevent that. Very minimal fiddling and adjusting of straps required -- it just pops on in the proper position and fits snugly, like it should. (Of course, the winner will be responsible for making sure the helmet fits their own child properly.)

I only have one helmet to give away today -- the Pink Panda model seen above -- in one size: The Zoomer Toddler helmet for kids ages 3+ fitting head sizes 19 3/4 to 20 1/2 inches.

True FitTM is a unique, 1-step, self-adjusting fit system that allows for correct fit every time. The helmet has seven top vents keep little heads extra cool, as well as hi-impact reflectors, and a PinchGuardTM buckle for no-ouchie buckling.

To win it, tell me:

What age did your toddler learn to ride a two-wheeler? Did s/he use training wheels or go cold turkey?
