Lidz on Kidz is a community effort dedicated to providing bicycle helmets to children in need. Since 2020, and with the support of many community sponsors, BIAWW has provided over 4,000 FREE bike and winter sport helmets to families in the region who cannot otherwise afford them! We are excited to make this program a yearly event each spring. Follow us on social media for up to date event information.
Visit the Lidz on Kidz Website for more information and to register for our next helmet giveaway.
How to measure what size helmet your child needs: Use a soft measuring tape to measure the head circumference, about 1 cm above the eyebrows ensuring that the tape is at the same height all around the head. Or use a piece of string then measure the length of the string.
Lidz on kidz is also an education program promoting helmet safety and awareness in schools and community events throughout the Waterloo-Wellington region. The programs mission is to help ensure that children in the Waterloo-Wellington region can ride safely, ultimately decreasing injury and concussion rates.
