Rider of the Day: Day Four

Today our Rider of the Day goes to John of Wilminton, NC.

John is only 9 years old and is riding the Katy Trail for the first time.  That alone could be enough to make him a special rider worth mentioning but John has an even better story, which brought him to the top of our list.

Over lunch, John was asked to take a picture with one of the oldest participants of the ride.  Being the clever kid he is, John quickly replied by saying, “I’ll do it for $5.”  Sure enough, the woman handed over the money and John eventually accepted her offer.

Now, most 9 year olds would probably want to buy some candy, a toy, or maybe a video game with their money, but not John.  He had another cause in mind for his newfound riches.  Watch John’s interview to see what he did with his cash!

Invasion of the Bike Riders

When you are traveling with a group of 300 people plus their equipment plus their bikes, you can change the landscape of a location rather quickly. This was just the case when it came to the Thursday night campgrounds at Marthasville, Mo.
