Nathan King has biked to work at Culver’s restaurant for ten years, rain or shine, but last Thursday he had to walk home after finding his bike lock snipped outside the diner.

The theft left him upset and sad, but he maintained a positive attitude despite the fact that the bike was his only transportation option.

On Saturday, however, a surprise was delivered to his Mason City workplace  — a brand new silver Schwinn hybrid bike and a sturdier lock.

“It makes me feel so special,” King told the Mason City Globe Gazette. “I wish I could say thank you to that person who was so kind.” The unexpected gift also left his crew chief with “goosebumps.”

Lorraine Kennedy Winterink was one of dozens posting on Facebook to describe Nate as a hard-working employee who is always very friendly. “Nathan is the nicest guy and best employee- he is always so friendly and kind. I’m glad that he was blessed in turn by this Good Samaritan.”
