A Harpenden man who died during a cycle ride on Nicky Line in Redbourn has been named.
46 year old Nick Pym died in an incident on September 5 near Harpendenbury Farm and Redbourn Golf Course when he fell from his bike for reasons unknown.
Nick leaves behind Amanda, his wife, their three children – William and Amelie, twins aged 11, and ten-year-old Levi – and his siblings John, Katy and Vicky.
Nick was born in Beckenham, Kent, but grew up in Milton Keynes, before he met Amanda at Southampton University where they were both studying in 1991.
Graduating with a degree in Electronic Engineering, Nick held various positions as a management consultant in London.
Amanda and Nick moved to Harpenden in 2006 where they gained a large group of friends, who they regularly socialised with, alongside the close friends they made whilst at university.
Described as an avid Spurs fan, Nick regularly attended games at White Hart Lane and took his sons with him.
Nick was also very keen on playing golf and skiing and the family took skiing holidays each year together.
Amanda said: “Nick loved spending time with his family. We recently returned from a holiday in America, where we spent three weeks on a road trip along the west coast. This was a holiday day of a life time for us.
Amanda continued: “Nick was a huge character. He was very funny, sharp-witted – with great one-liners – and very intelligent. He was known for his eccentricity, but above all he was a real caring and generous family man.
“He will be missed by so many people – by his work colleagues, friends but, above all, by his family.”
