Did you know that it is a law in NH that all children up to age 16 must wear a bicycle helmet? And of course, you never see a serious bicycle rider hitting the roads or trails without a helmet – so age 16 should not be a stopping point for wearing a helmet when bicycling!

To help make it easier for you to get an affordable, properly fitted helmet for your kids, the Lakes Region General Hospital (http://www.lrgh.org/ ) provides information on local resources, low-cost bicycle helmets and free helmet safety fitting for your children.
