Wear Your Helmet to Work Day Winners Announced

Roux Logo

Shine those helmets and tidy those chinstraps, because there’s a major holiday headed our way. Wear Your Helmet to Work Day presented by Roux is Friday, August 17.

What is Wear Your Helmet to Work Day? Simple: It’s the one day of the year when we can share our passion with the rest of the world (or at least the office). Strike up a shock tuning conversation by the water cooler. Berate your cubemate because you can do a driver change in your endurance car quicker than he can move out of the way of your filing cabinet. Sleep in a meeting because your visor is tinted. You can even enjoy your safest commute of the year thanks to your trusty helmet.

Don’t forget to share your office headwear with the world, too! Follow Grassroots Motorsports on Instagram, then post your photos with the hashtag #WearYourHelmetToWork. You can upload your photos directly to our Facebook page, too. At the end of the work day, we’ll share our favorite photos with the world, and send out some great prize packs courtesy of Roux Helmets. They’ve signed on to make Wear Your Helmet to Work Day a reality.

So mark your calendars and ready your helmets: Wear Your Helmet to Work Day is Friday, August 17. Don’t have a helmet, or need to upgrade before the big day? Check out the innovative stuff that Roux Helmets has to offer. And if you purchase any carbon-fiber helmet from a Roux dealer, you’ll get a free GT helmet bag, too!

SWMBO & I are driving to a family reunion that day . Wouldn't fit in well with all the military flight helmets around work anyway. Theirs look more badass.

Regarding the top picture, better hope the aircraft owner doesn't see it... "So you think working on my plane with a helmet on is funny, huh?"

Sometimes you want to wear a helmet where I work but you REALLY don’t want to wear a helmet where I work!

According to the Canadian Civil Aircraft registry, it's out of southwestern Ontario. I'll omit the owner's name. Worn helmets a lot when adjusting/setting up generators on  helo twin pack engines on  Sikorsky S58Ts. We tweeked, pilot let us know when to quit.

I don't have any Instagram or FB accounts so loaded it onto here, all the way from Canada! All motor all day....in the environmental world! A lot of strange looks from people in traffic on my way in to work, some laughed (few) but worth it! Just needed to be part of such a special day.....if only I was drivin one of the project cars, instead had the wife's 09 automatic Civic haha!

Slightly annoyed that this was over so soon. It's still the 17th... Anyhoo here's mine:


Didn't work today due to wedding rehearsal, so naturally I just wore my helmet there! #WearYourHelmetToWork

Unfortunately, we had to have an emergency c-section, so I didn’t get to participate this year.

I suspect they would have frowned upon the helmet in the operating room.  I know my wife may have needed to be further sedated to avoid beating me with it :)

Great pics everyone!

Love all the pics, thanks to all who participated. My boss once joked that if I ever got out of the car and walked into work without taking the helmet off, he would assume that I was prepared to pee in a cup haha.


Looks like a lot of fun was had, that's for sure!

Great pictures; my favorite was the classroom with all of the children also in helmets.

I'm glad there was one from a Veterinary practice. I didn't contribute one myself, I work in a corporate practice and have to be careful about what photos get out into the world.
