If you want to make an old man happy, take him out of the old peoples home and go for a bike ride with him.
We were up in Antwerp again this week end. We still have some tidying up to do but it was such a gorgeous day we had already planned to take Ria’s father out for a ride. He is actually happy in the old peoples home , he just misses riding his bike.
So we took him out for a ride in the countryside around Nieuwmoer where he knows just about every rideable road and track. We just went for an hour, but that was exactly what he needed. Very satisfying to make someone so happy with something so simple and doing something you love to do yourself at the same time!
