A MOTHER of two is celebrating after taking part in Britain's biggest cycling event.
Jacquie Kier, of Therfield, took part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100 on Sunday, raising more than £1,500 for the MS Society. The race saw 20,000 riders tackle a 100-mile route finishing in The Mall in central London.
The 50-year-old said: “I’m so pleased with what I have achieved. My target was £2,000 and there’s still some money to come so fingers crossed we can get there. It took months of training but I’m glad I did it and am definitely looking to do something similar in the future.”
For the past 20 years Jacquie Kier has watched her mother Elizabeth, 75, suffer at the hands of the debilitating illness multiple sclerosis. She says she is glad to be able to give something to those like her.
