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.”
Carolyn passed after living with a sarcoma, a type of cancer, for two and a half years.
Her Husband Anthony Sant, 51, of Abbey Avenue, said: “We thought a long cycle ride would symbolise the cheery determination, courage, faith, and inner strength that Carolyn showed in living with her sarcoma.”

The cycle ride is raising money for Sarcoma UK and Caring for Life, a Christian charity based in Leeds that cares for the homeless and less fortunate.
Juliet added: “Carolyn was always very compassionate towards people in life”.
Carolyn was well known throughout the St Albans community and was chair of governors at Killigrew primary school for many years.
