Vista Outdoor Donates 100 Bell Helmets for California Bike Rodeo

When the Coalinga, California, Department of Police Services called on Bell Helmets for a donation in support of the annual Coalinga-Huron Recreation and Park District’s Bike Rodeo, Bell did not disappoint. The pictures tell the story!

Participants of the Bike Rodeo get hands-on experience with helmet fitting, bike inspection, repairs and safety check; bike crime prevention; and understanding the rules of the road.  But that’s not all – there’s an obstacle skills course, raffle and prizes.

Andy Gonda, National Account Manager for Action Sports, said of the event and donation, “Providing bike helmets for this event was a pleasure and a great way for us to celebrate National Bike Month. ”

A variety of youth Bell helmets were given to participants.

Police officers create a “V” to show their appreciation for Vista Outdoor’s donation.                

Boxes filled with colorful safety helmets will be delivered in advance of the Bike Rodeo in early May.
