Christian is just doing what he likes… riding, but that wasn’t just something he could do for a month straight. Not long ago he’s last bike got stolen. That was a gift for his 8th birthday.

But he left it on the side of his house one day… and never saw it again.

“He cried that day when it was taken.”
