Today: Wear Your Helmet to Work Day Presented by Stilo

 

Shine those helmets and tidy those chinstraps, because there's a major holiday headed our way. Wear Your Helmet to Work Day presented by Stilo is Friday, October 18.

What is Wear Your Helmet to Work Day? Simple: It's the one day of the year when we can share our motorsports 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 faster 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. Whatever you do, make sure to follow Grassroots Motorsports on Instagram, then post your photos with the hashtag #WearYourHelmetToWork and tag Grassroots Motorsports in each post.

Win a New Helmet From Stilo!

Of course, there's more: You can win a new helmet from Stilo! In order to submit your entry, follow Grassroots Motorsports on Instagram, then post your photos with the hashtag #WearYourHelmetToWork and make sure you tag Grassroots Motorsports in each post. You can also upload your photos directly to our Facebook page or post them in the comments below. At the end of the work day, we'll share some of our favorite photos with the world, and give the person who submitted our favorite shot a brand new Stilo ST5 GT Helmet. All photos must be submitted by 5 p.m. Eastern on Friday, October 18.

So mark your calendars and ready your helmets: Wear Your Helmet to Work Day is Friday, October 18.

We get to see the Stig and his very extended family every where in the world including the his evil 15 cousin that is a vet with an evil cat, a animal vet and his pet cat Harman.

Some very funny photos to say the least, though the vet with the cat just screams evil overlord for sure.

Mine from last year had some nerd cred if you can make out what's going on here:

I'll be between jobs when the date rolls around this year, does taking a pic on the couch in an undershirt and boxers with ramen count?

I've had two different Facebook memories pop up for August dates.  Curious why the switch to October?  Too hot for a helmet in FL?

FWIW, it is illegal to wear a helmet in a car in Ohio.

 

So if you reside in our great state, you can wear your helmet AT work, just don't wear it TO work, unless you are riding a bike.  Or a motorcycle.  Or you can just risk getting a ticket, which is pretty much "any day that ends in Y", so you go right on ahead with that.

It's illegal to drive a car on public roads with your face obscured in most jurisdictions, which is why stage rally drivers still use open-face helmets.

Not very tech savvy , no Facebook or Instagram accounts. So just posted here. 

Just another day at the "office" in Palm Beach FL. 

PS it is not advised to try and swim in a helmet. Do not try at home.

Do mountain bike helmets count?

How about if I bring the mountain bike into the office too?

I work at home on Fridays, so this is the home office. The pups slept through the whole thing, too.
