Video: Dad uses leafblower to give tot on trike some wind assistance

We all like a bit of wind on our back when we're pedaling ... ...

 A headwind is the cyclist's bane; a tailwind, however, is always welcome.

And here's a heartwarming video from the United States that shows a dad giving his son a bit of wind assistance with the help of a leafblower.

It was uploaded to YouTube last October by Mark Bundy from Williamsburg, Virginia, and the clip has got renewed traction on social media this week.

Mark has posted a couple of other videos featuring his son, Graham.

Here's one of the poor toddler, looking like a Donald Trump-hued Minion, faceplanting after a chute. 

The expression on his brother's face suggests a sense of foreboding.

Happily, he shrugged it off like a pro.
