The original poster stated “I am showing this to my kids tonight! They think school is a given! I wonder who would be able to do what this boy does!”

As a five-year-old, I biked up a one-kilometer shingle road every school day to catch the school bus.  My father built a bike shelter, and we left our bikes in the bike shelter and then biked home at the end of the day.  Those were the days when you didn’t need to lock up your bikes.

Then I would bike three km to me picked up for a ride to netball on Saturdays.  Then after netball, I would get on my bike and bike the 3kms home.  I thought nothing of it that is just what I did.  Having a family that loved rugby, they always went to rugby and I was always transported by someone else to netball.
