Rockville To Distribute Free Bikes To 76 TERRIFIC Kids

Elementary School Students Demonstrated Outstanding Character

Rockville, Maryland, May 13 — Seventy-six first- through fifth-grade kids will each receive their free bicycle and helmet, Sunday, May 19, for taking part in the City of Rockville’s annual TERRIFIC Bikes program and proving that they’re outstanding citizens.

Bikes and helmets will be distributed from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at Elwood Smith Community Center, 601 Harrington Road. 

The TERRIFIC Bikes program encourages children to do at least six good deeds to show they are TERRIFIC — or Trustworthy, Earnest, Respectful, Responsible, Involved, Fair, Industrious, and Caring. In return, participating elementary schoolers are each presented with a bike that was collected and reconditioned by volunteers from the Rockville Bike Hub. 

The Rockville Bike Hub helps members of the community obtain, recycle and maintain bicycles, repairs and donates unused and unwanted bicycles to the needy, educates community members about the benefits of biking, and enhances the health of the community and environment by promoting bicycle transportation.

The Mayor and Council presented certificates at their Monday, May 6 meeting to children who took part.
