A major goal of the Harrisburg Bicycle Club is to promote safe riding for cyclists, and helmets are required on all of the HBC rides. May is National Bicycle Safety Month. In observance of National Bike Safety, the HBC will offer a $5.00 discount coupon on ANSI or SNELL approved bicycle helmets purchased during the months of May through September 2014.
The discount is made possible by the Janet A. Pontius Bicycle Safety Foundation Fund, established in 1976 to honor the memory of Janet A. Pontius. The funds raised by donations and administered through the HBC are used to promote bicycle safety. You may contribute to the fund at any time – the membership form in the Spokesman provides space to do so. Watch the HBC web site for announcement of the participating shops. Then visit and ask those shops for your coupon. A limited number of coupons will be available so be sure to shop early and enjoy the whole season safely.
