At the fair, children will be able to have their bike helmets correctly fitted. The first 50 children under the age of 12 will receive a free helmet. Child bicycle helmets will also be on sale for $9 each while supplies last.
The event is being sponsored by the Bellevue Police Department, Overlake Hospital Medical Center and Factoria Market Place.
Every year, approximately 700 bicyclists die in bicycle accidents and two-third of those suffered a traumatic brain injury. Bicycle helmets protect the brain and skull and the neck in an accident. However, the helmet needs to be fitted properly for maximum protection. Improperly fitted helmets have a tendency to shift so an expert fitting can insure a snug and correct fit.
