Information on Bike Helmets

It is strongly recommended for all Hubway riders to wear a helmet. It is the state law for riders 16 and under to wear a helmet while riding.

Here are some tips for fitting your helmet:

  • Wear it level on your head, about two finger-widths above your eyebrows.

  • Make sure your helmet fits snugly on your head and does not rock side-to-side.

  • Buckle the chin strap and make sure it’s tight enough – you should only be able to fit about two fingers between your chin and the strap.
