Give freely, and you will profit. Proverbs 11:25

Pro 11:25  Give freely, and you will profit. Help others, and you will gain more for yourself.

I think this is speaking directly to lending roadside assistance to people who require help. It is a form of “what goes around comes around”, or “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”.

Helping out fellow bicyclists is just one of those things that you will reap huge benefits from. You could meet a new ride buddy. It is an opportunity to play the hero. You will feel better about yourself. Someday you will be o the other end of the stick and you will want somebody to stop and render assistance to you.

Just like the movie Pay It Forward, you will get what you give out.
