How to enter the competition

Step 1

Fill in the form and download our helmet design template.


Step 2

Choose your design category (or enter designs for both):- 

1. Bristol - and all it encompasses

Bristol has always been a passionate cycling city. It's where Sustrans was founded.

In 1979, it was where the first miles of what would later become the National Cycle Network was created. To this day, the Bristol and Bath Railway Path remains one of the most well-used traffic-free paths in the UK. 

Can you create a design that epitomises this vibrant city? What does Bristol mean to you?

2. The National Cycle Network

With over 12,000 miles of routes crisscrossing the UK, the National Cycle Network is used by millions of people every year. 

Do you have a favourite route? Do you love those little blue and red signs as much as us?

Create a design of what the National Cycle Network means to you.

Step 3

Once you've perfected your design, send your image to with the following information:

  • Your name, contact email address and telephone number.
  • Your name, age and a valid email address for your parent or legal guardian if you’re under 18.
  • The title of the category you are entering.

About the Hedkayse helmet

The Hedkayse | ONE is the world's first truly multi-impact cycle helmet, helping Hedkayse lay claim to being the safest on the market today. This is thanks to its core material Enkayse™ which fully recovers after an impact, thus withstanding the knocks and drops of everyday life. Meaning the Hedkayse | ONE can outlast the lifespan of regular cycle helmets which need to be replaced after a single impact.


What's different about the Hedkayse helmet? 

The Hedkayse helmet is multi-impact, multi-fit (one-size fits all), and can be folded to half it's size.
