Kids in Larchmont Are Rewarded for Wearing Bike Helmets This Summer

Kids in Larchmont Are Rewarded for Wearing Bike Helmets This Summer


Kids can receive free, pizza, ice cream, candy, and more with just one stipulation: wearing a bike helmet.

Skull Patrol is an initiative created by the Larchmont Recreation Department and Larchmont Chamber of Commerce to encourage children to wear helmets while riding bikes.

This is how it works: when bike officers in the Village of Larchmont see a kid wearing his or her helmet correctly, the child will receive a gift card from a local business, then the gift card will be redeemed for a prize (kid-friendly gifts or treats). At the end of the summer, all of the kids who received prizes will be entered in a drawing for a new bike, thanks to donations from Coldwell Banker of Larchmont and Miller’s Toy Store. 

Since Skull Patrol began on May 1, more than 250 tickets have been awarded to kids in the neighborhood, according to Mamaroneck Daily Voice. Participating businesses in the community include:

  • Auray Gourmet
  • Bread & Cocoa
  • Choice Copy
  • COCOA Clutch Handbags and Accessories
  • D’Agostino Clothiers and Tailors
  • East Avenue Café
  • Down to Earth Larchmont Farmers’ Market & Go-Go Pops
  • Foley’s True Value Hardware
  • Futterman’s Stationary
  • Kurt Sauer Opticians
  • Larchmont Music Academy
  • Larchmont PBA
  • La Sirene Restaurant
  • Mancino Tailors
  • La Prisienne French Bakery and Café
  • Pink on Palmer
  • Post Wine and Spirits
  • The Smith Family
  • Stephanie’s Kloset
  • Sunshine Coffee Roasters
  • Sweeets Candy
  • The Flower Bar
  • Villa Maria Pizza


All tickets must be redeemed by Sept. 15 in order to be entered into the raffle to win a new bike. For more information, visit the Village of Larchmont’s website.
