A Touch of Generosity

It’s the small things that people do that make them stand out from the rest. And that’s what made this 100km ride even better. 
After 80kms one of the guys dropped back from the group and was losing touch. I don’t like being left behind so I eased off and stayed with him. 
Once we got to some shade, we stopped off for a bite to eat and a drink. It was there that a young mother came out from her house and asked it we wanted our water bottles refilled with ice water. We both accepted the offer and then continued on our way. Bottles filled with ice water and blocks of ice.
It made riding the remainder 20kms so much easier and ensured I had a smile on my face.  

It’s the simple things that keep my faith in people. This act proved my point.
