The other night Priscilla test rode the Nirve Night Owl to see what all this fuss I was making about the bike. Sure enough she knew exactly what I was talking about once she got on the Night Owl. I still can’t put my finger on it, but once you get on this bike, you just smile. It’s the same smile that I see when kids get on a new bicycle.
Tires still have dry mud on them from the trails.
This bike really is fun…
You may remember my 10yr old daughter Breanna participated in the PTA Reflections program at her school. Any child is able to enter a piece of artwork centering on the theme “How I can make a difference is….” Breanna chose to share a video about how she can make a difference by riding her bike. What can I say..it’s in the blood. lol.
Well tonight I am proud to say that Breanna won first place in her category for her school and is one of twenty-one children to represent our PTA council at the next judging level (there were hundreds of entries). This is the third level of judging that she is moving on to. She could then move on to represent the state on a national level. What an incredible way to get this message out!!
What was really incredible was one of the judges would not stop talking about how amazing Breanna’s video was. She said that she was so impressed with the video that she wants to speak with the city to have Breanna’s entry run as a commercial on the local station to advocate bike riding!!! How cool is that?!
We’re just so proud of our sweet Banan. We truly believe that bicyles do make a difference in this world and are so proud to see the next generation raise up and begin the efforts to get more people on their bikes! So we’ll keep you updated on the progress! We will find out on Saturday if she will move to the fourth level. 🙂 And in case you missed the video you can watch it here.
