TERRIFIC Bikes is Back with Free Bikes for Kids

Rockville, Maryland, March 23 — Rockville is home to outstanding school kids, and every TERRIFIC kid needs a bike. How do you prove you’re TERRIFIC? Show us you’re Trustworthy, Earnest, Respectful, Responsible, Involved, Fair, Industrious and Caring!

That’s the core of the 2018 TERRIFIC challenge, which gives free bikes to students in grades 1-5 who fulfill six out of 16 “good deeds,” such as perfect attendance in school for one month, volunteering with a charity, picking up litter in a public place, or helping someone who is sick or elderly.

To be eligible, students must have a sponsor to monitor their progress. Successful participants receive a certificate for taking part and are invited to attend the Mayor and Council meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, May 7. Completed forms need to be turned in by Saturday, April 7. (If you got your bike, why not try again and earn one for a younger sibling?) Find details and download a form at www.rockvillemd.gov/terrificbikes.

Awardees receive their reconditioned bikes and new helmets at a special event, 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m., Sunday, May 20, hosted by Rockville Bike Hub, where bikes will be fitted and kids will receive a brief safety orientation.

Have a bike to donate? Email mrockvillebikehub@gmail.com or visit www.rockvillebikehub.org for more information.
