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!
