Surprise From My Grandson

I had him with me all last week. He's a country boy who really loves the outdoors. While I had him, we did a number of activities. We went kayak fishing, kayaking with the gators, bicycling, frog gigging, target shooting (to include tannerite) and even reloaded some deer ammo for him. While I was driving him home I asked him what his favorite thing was. He said it was the bicycle rides. He has never really ridden much. One of the rides we did was 15 miles. He loved it. I showed him how drafting works too. He thought that was really cool. I was stunned that cycling was his favorite. I am thrilled to have been able to share that with him. I don't know why, but I feel tremendous satisfaction when others derive the pleasure from cycling that I do.
