An emotional gift

I love mountain biking. Less than a year ago a group of mountain bikers volunteered to form a pilot program which aimed to help inform and educate hikers and bikers about the trail and the beauty around our city park. Usually, the group does not patrol together, so we don’t get too much time to get to know each other. Five months after the beginning of the program, I had my bike stolen from my house. It was a really old bike, but as I had just lost my job, I had no way of getting even a used one.

I told the guys at the group that I was not going to be able to patrol for a while. A month later they surprise me with a brand new $1500 mountain bike. I know that feeling, the feeling of surprise and gratitude. To be honest, I wanted to cry but I was too shy. – Mario 😀
