Terrific Future Bike To Work Participants...

...and it sounds like these are folks you'll want alongside you on the roadways.

Rockville City announced its "Terrific Bike Awardees".

Here's the idea: the city looks for kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade who demonstrate they are: trustworthy, earnest, respectful, responsible, involved, fair and caring. See how they show they are terrific? (Hint: read those qualities again).

The kids can't just claim they have these qualities; they have to carry out 6 responsible acts and have a parent or mentor vouch for them. Those who are deemed truly terrific get--you guessed it--a bike!

Just who are these kids? Here are the names provided by the City of Rockville. Kids, take a bow, and a ride around the block. This is your day, congratulations.
  • Melanie Tommer
  • Ryan Tommer
  • Michael Xie
  • Nicole Deprey
  • Ritika Naiknavare
  • Karan Naiknavare
  • Joshua Hu
  • Harrison Brown
  • Jisu Kim
  • Minsu Kim
  • Liang Ling
  • Jordan Cerna

*and yes, the kids were given helmets as well. The bikes were reconditioned and prepped by the folks at Bikes for the World, a non-profit that connects people with bicycles all over the world.
