St Albans woman, Rebecca Vandyke, cycles 235 miles to Paris in aid of The Stroke Association
A St Albans woman has completed a 235 mile bike ride from London to Paris to raise money for the Stroke Association.
Rebecca Vandyke is an employee of First Capital Connect, which sponsored her £500 to complete the charity cycle alongside 13 other participants.
The challenge began at Twickenham and finished at the Eiffel Tower in Paris three days later.
Rebecca, 30, who works in the control centre at King’s Cross, said: "It was the biggest cycle ride I have ever done and I am delighted to have raised money for such a fantastic cause.
"Completing the ride was a huge personal challenge of mine.
"I rode as part of a small group of riders and it was emotional to listen to some of the stories behind why the others were participating."
Rebecca plans to do more fundraising challenges for the Stroke Association in the near future.
Keith Jipps, FCC Customer Services Director, said: "Massive congratulations to Rebecca on completing her ride and we are delighted that we were able to sponsor her on her fantastic achievement.
"The Stroke Association is a great organisation to donate to and we wish Rebecca all the best in her future challenges raising money for them."
