Grandmother realises lifelong dream of first bike ride

YOU'RE never too old to realise a lifelong dream.

But sometimes you need a helping hand to make it reality.

That's the message gleamed from this heart-warming story of man who helped his 88-year-old grandmother live out her dream of taking her first-ever ride on a bicycle.

Pauline Tornetta, for as long as she can remember, has only ever wanted a bicycle for her birthday but "never got one".

But that all changed when her grandson, Andrew Fusco, fused parts of an old tricycle with an office chair, and then hooked it to his own bike to give Pauline the gift she always wanted.

In footage of the sweet moment, family members help Pauline into her custom ride before Andrew takes her on a scenic and unforgettable ride.
