Riders who use New York City's bike-sharing program can now rent a helmet too.

Bike tour and rental company Bike and Roll NYC is partnering with Citi Bike to provide helmet rentals to all users of the program.

Helmets can be rented at 10 locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn. They can be rented in one location and dropped off at another. It costs $3 a day or $15 a week.

The locations are near many Citi Bike stations.

The company says the helmets are cleaned and sanitized after each use. It has more than 1,000 helmets and plans to obtain more if needed.

Citi Bike offers an annual membership of $95 and a day pass at $9.95. It has 6,000 bikes at 330 stations in Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn.
