On Wednesday July 30th, 2014 Legislator Denise Ford distributed bike helmets to nearly three hundred barrier island residents. Long Beach and its surrounding communities have the most bicyclists on the streets at any given time in Nassau County. Bicycle safety information, educational materials, and helmets were provided by the New York State Coalition for Transportation Safety.
Legislator Ford, who donated more than a dozen helmets to the giveaway, urges her constituents to ride their bikes carefully and responsibly. She explained, “I hope that promoting bicycle safety will improve the well-being of our residents, reduce injuries, and save lives.”
