Free Cycle Helmets and Hi-Vis Jackets Being Handed Out by AA in London Tomorrow (Friday) - MORE cities coming soon!

AA, the motoring organisation, is to give away 5000 LED-equipped lids on its ‘Cycle Safety Day’ promotion, Friday 15th April.

Ostensibly, the 5000 helmets – and 5000 hi-vis vests – are meant to be handed to those hiring ‘Boris bikes’, the majority of whom don’t wear bicycle helmets. However, any cyclist will be given the helmet and vest at two locations in London tomorrow.

The AA branded helmets and hi-vis vests will be handed out from 7.30am at Waterloo Place, London SW1Y 4BN. A second hand-out will take place at 1pm on the west side of Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London, WC2A 3NA (close to Sardinia Street, just off Kingsway, south of Holborn). If other locations are used they will be highlighted on Twitter.

The AA said it will repeat its helmet giveaway in other UK cities later in the year.

makes a change from the benefit leaches

Thank you for the post OP, voted hot

Cleaver advertising from the AA, for a relatively small outlay they will get far more positive attention than they would from other, more expensive campaigns.

I agree would be nice to see in all areas but to be honest i would not want to drive a car or a bike in london. It's def one of the most congested and dangerous areas in the country.

Voted hot but come up north too AA.

I have just edited title to make it clear that other cities will be along soon to garner interest in this post and promotion generally. I don't cycle but apart from the occasional manic cyclist admire their 'green' and 'healthy' pursuit and wish them well.

Yes london 1st! how does that come to be , mmm bet it dont make it to my neck of the woods, yorkshire!

I've got images of thousands of fans in the Manchester derby tomorrow wearing hi-viz jackets, for some reason.
