Getting Amy back on her bike

£3,993 of £5,000 goal

Raised by 111 people in 37 months
So, my sister Amy is 3 days into an endurance race called the TransAm ( www.transambikerace.com). Competitors cycle across the entire width of America. She has trained and dreamt about this race for months, talking of little else.

Her bike was stolen from outside a cafe yesterday afternoon in Oregon. She is currently stranded with literally only her cycling outfit (and luckily her phone, passport and credit cards).

Instead of quitting and letting these thieves ruin her lifetime ambition she wants to get back on the bike. She has been totally self funded thus far and unfortunately has no more funds to buy a replacement bike. We are hoping friends, family and bike enthusiasts might be willing to spare a couple of £/$ to get her back on the bike and finish the race (and restore her faith in humanity).

Thank you family, friends and supporters. Amy has a new bike!!! She is called Ruby Twosday and here she is in all her glory. Amy is now officially back on the bike and it would absolutely not of been possible without you. Faith in humanity restored.

You can follow Amy on her bike here: http://transambikerace.com

We are still collecting funds as even though Amy has not equipped herself to the full extent of her loss we are still slightly short of target.

Our entire family and most of all Amy appreciate all your kind words and donations - the response really has been phenomenal. Amy is very busy getting herself and a new bike to Colorado to rejoin the race. Insurance has confirmed they won't pay a thing so this will all be used to get Amy and her new bike back on the tarmac which would not have been conceivable without your support.

Photos of new bike and kit to follow soon.....
