Take a Kid at Heart on a Bicycle Ride
Because there’s no age limit on having fun by going fast.
Ole Kassow was riding a bicycle in his hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark, when he passed an elderly man using a walker. Kassow started thinking about how sad it would be to lose the ability to ride a bicycle, to never feel the wind in your hair again.
A few days later, he rented a trishaw (like a rickshaw) and showed up at a nearby nursing home and asked if anyone wanted a ride. Gertrude said yes, and for the next hour as he pedaled, his passenger talked all about her life.
When he returned to the home and told the staff about the outing, they said, “But Gertrude doesn’t speak.”
