A Stevenage woman has completed a 310-mile charity cycle ride despite her bike being stolen while she was training.
Sarah Marks, of Wisden Road, has raised £1,200 for the Stevenage Community Trust after spending a total of 22 hours in the saddle during a four-day ride from London to Paris.
The 33-year-old’s original bike, a silver Morgan Radford worth £290, was stolen in June while padlocked to a signpost outside her work place – Stevenage Packaging Limited – in the Old Town.
The bike is still missing but that did not stop Sarah from continuing her training with a friend’s bike and completing the race earlier this month.
She said: “I’m really pleased with how everything went. I borrowed a friend’s bike and feel I got through it pretty well!
