PoCo granny and grandson are thrilled at gift of bike

The Editor,

Last Friday, I was at Sun Valley Park in Port Coquitlam with my grandson. While we were playing at the playground, a man approached us pushing a small boy’s bike. He wanted to know if my grandson had a bike. When I told him “no,” he said his twin sons had outgrown their little bikes and asked if I would like this bike.

I was so taken aback. What a kind gesture on his part. The bike was like brand new. He even had a bag with the training wheels in it.

I just want to thank him again. My grandson was so happy he wouldn’t get off the bike.

I hope I will have the opportunity to repay someone else with a random act of kindness.

Susan Hyde, Port Coquitlam
