  • HELMETS

    Need a helmet? Here are two ways to get one.

    Buy a helmet from a local bike shop. Save money on a helmet as a Bay Area Bike Share annual member! Along with your Bay Area Bike Share key, you'll receive a coupon good for $10 off one  Bern helmet at selected retailers across the Bay Area. You may also redeem your coupon online by following the instructions listed on the coupon. A helmet discount coupon is valid for roughly 90 days after arriving in the mail, and must include your member key number in order to be redeemed. No key number listed on your coupon? Please write it in before purchasing your helmet; find the number on the back side of your Bay Area Bike Share key, right beneath the bar code.
