Kind-hearted police officers and toll-gate staff have come to the aid of a man who got lost on his way home to see his family during Spring Festival.

The man had been attempting to ride his bicycle from Shandong province to Heilongjiang, a distance of many hundreds of kilometers, because he couldn't afford a train ticket.

Unfortunately for the man, he was a month into his journey when he realized he had been traveling in the wrong direction.

The man was stopped by local traffic police as he rode along an expressway that's open only to motor vehicles.

He was in Wuhu, 536 kilometers south of his starting point in Rizhao city. After being interrogated by officers, the man came to realize his situation and told police that he might have been given wrong directions at some point during his journey.

Officer Wang Shuan said the man is a temporary worker who spent most of his money ¨C which was not a great amount ¨C in cybercaf¨¦s, so he decided to ride to Qiqihar, Heilongjiang for his family reunion over the Spring Festival holiday.

Qiqihar is more than 2,000 kilometers north of Wuhu and officer Wang said police did not believe the man would be able to complete the journey on time. Expressway officers and toll-gate staff donated money so the man could buy a train ticket.
