Honorable Mention #4

student essay scanHere's another great Honorable Mention from our Student Essay Contest. Read Wyatt's essay below which speaks to the simple joys of speeding through puddles. As a side note, Wyatt's school, Sunnyside, has one of the highest cycling rates in the city.


I like to bike in the rain because I love the rain. I also love biking and it is a great chance to hang out with my friends. Also, it is really fun to speed through the puddles, and make huge waves.


Your admiring biker,
