  • Bike stolen from Grantham man who used it to train for charity mountain climb in memory of mum

 

A Grantham man was shocked to wake up to find that his £700 bike that he uses for charity mountain climb in memory of his mum was stolen from his garden.

Steve Smith, 33, Hornsby Road, Grantham, bike was stolen in the early hours of Tuesday morning and Lincolnshire police are appealing for information.

The Trek Marlin 5 bike was more than a bike. Steve Smith uses the bike to train for his trek up Ben Nevis to raise money in memory of his mum for Cancer Research UK.

Steve Smith is no stranger to taking on impossible challenges. He has already climbed Pen y Fan to mark the two-year anniversary of his mother’s death from cancer. If that challenge was not hard enough, Steve decided to climb Pen y Fan with no footwear and carrying a 100lb barbell.

A police spokesperson said: “We were called from a property in Hornsby Road in Grantham at around 6.40am after reports of a bike theft.

“The trek bike was discovered missing at 5am and was last seen at 10.30pm the night before.

If you have any information that can help us, find the bike, call 101, quoting incident number 57.”

Steve Smith is appealing to people to keep an eye out for the bike so he can continue to train and raise much needed funds for charity.
