Trike, yes. She doesn't have a pedal-less. We bought it for when she rides on the back of my bike (I hate the seat--we've done it like 3 times), and I just figured that this would get her in the habit--"If we're on a bike, we're wearing a helmet." Once she's on a real bike, it's the law in our state.
Yes, always outside. He only rides his Like-a-Bike and he can FLY on that thing. I have been having him wear a helmet since his first push tricycle, just to get him into the routine. If I ask him if he wants to go out and ride his bike the first thing he says is "gotta get my helmet"<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
If my kids are on a bike or scooter (2.5 and 5.5 y/o boys) they MUST have a helmet on. It has been so easy once we started the habit. They don't question anymore, helmets on for safety. My dh and I have done a bunch of cycling in the past so we make sure to always model the correct behavior as well so we are not all talk!

Shoe too, so his toes can't get caught.
