#ShowMeHelmetHair Welcome Party

#ShowMeHelmetHair Bike Party

Every May we run our #ShowMeHelmetHair social media campaign to welcome new and seasoned cyclists to the season. It’s a play on the “tip of the hat” salutation and our way of starting a dialogue around post-ride appearance which can be a deterrent to sustained bicycle riding for many people. 

We are excited to partner with Headchop hair studio for this year's #ShowMeHelmetHair Campaign and Welcome Party.

Join us on Wednesday, May 16th to chat with Headchop stylists on hairstyles and products for your commute, get bike maintenance & safety tips, and learn about the state of bike commuting in the city.

Location: Headchop Hair Studio, 86 Berry Street, Brooklyn NY 

Date: Wednesday, May 16th from 7p-10p
