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!
