APPLAUSE: Community support student mountan bikers

To the Editor,

Re: Thieves spoil riding plans for students, June 26.

I’d like to take this time to personally thank reporter Toby Gorman and give him an idea of my appreciation toward the community’s kind actions.

After getting my bike stolen, a lot of community patrons came out of the shadows just to give me their support.

It’s hard to walk around Nanaimo without someone identifying me or my friends as the ‘Arkansas boys’, then quickly apologizing for my mishap and offering a lending hand.

This is surely due to the article that I’m extremely appreciative of.

This sort of hospitality is hard to find no matter where you are in the world, and is always greatly appreciated.

So thank you to Toby and thank you Nanaimo community for the kind gestures and open hearts.
