Five family and friends are uniting for a charity 100 mile cycle ride in memory of a cancer victim.
Husband, brother-in law and close friends of the late Carolyn Sant will be cycling from Abbey Avenue in St Albans to Cambridge and back tomorrow (4).
The quintet will set of at 8.30am with a picnic pit stop once they reach Cambridge.
Carolyn’s sister Juliet Goodman, 48, of Midway St Albans, said:
We wanted to do something positive to mark the one year anniversary of Carolyn’s passing.”
