Last week we posted a picture of Caroline on her trike under the title Cycling means freedom. Sadly we have just learned that her specially adapted disabled trike has been stolen from outside her house in Edinburgh. If anyone sees it please let the police know (dial 101 or contact Crime Stoppers) as Caroline would like it back, because it is her main means of transport.
Update: We have been told that a member of Caroline’s family has now offered to cover the cost of replacing Caroline’s trike so that she can once again enjoy the freedom of cycling.
Update: the latest news is the Caroline’s trike has been found in the Niddry area of the city, following police enquiries. Thank you to everyone who put the word out and looked for it. However, it has been badly damaged and may not be rideable, a full mechanical assessment will be carried out on Monday.
Update: Following the mechanical assessment, the trike was found to be beyond saving and had to be scrapped. Caroline has now ordered a new trike and we hope to be able at sometime in the future to bring you pictures of her on her new trike.
