The Bicycle Helmet Initiative Trust


The Bicycle Helmet Initiative Trust aimed at increasing the awareness of using Bicycle Helmet when riding.

They say…

The Bicycle Helmet Initiative Trust was set up in 1998 with the aim of reducing the number of children who are killed and injured every year in the UK as a result of head injuries sustained in cycling accidents.

Government figures show that child cyclists are more than three times more likely to die on Britain’s roads than adult cyclists.

According to Transport Research Laboratory data, child cyclists make up 6.6 per cent of road cyclists, yet they account for a disproportionate number of accident deaths.

Research has demonstrated that helmets can reduce the severity of head injuries by up to 85 per cent.

There are a series of interactive games and a cycling related wordsearch @
