Iohan was so fast! He is 30 years younger than Bob and bikes for a living, so we powered along at a good clip. As I thought about how much easier it was today, it put into perspective that life is easier with friends. I have been blessed with many good friends who have lifted me up over the years. Many of them, like Iohan I met because we took a chance to help someone. By hosting Iohan, through a cycling website, we gained a lifetime friend and now share a love of cycling. Not only did Iohan ride all day with me up a huge mountain, but he donated his best day of work this summer of planting trees to the breaking the cycles campaign. He has a servant's heart with huge compassion for others.
