Letter: Mobile assist

April 16, 2014 

Do you see any Good Samaritans around you? I recently did. I had a flat tire on my bike and had walked from Chiawana Park to Road 52 with it. I was counting the blocks before I'd reach home.

Mike Watkins, of RoundAbout Cycling, stopped his car and wanted to help. He has a mobile bicycle repair business, but he wasn't looking for my business. He just wanted to help me figure out what was wrong and fill my tire with air so I could get home.

Many thanks to you, Mike. You are proof of the good people here in the Tri-Cities.
