A retired man is desperate to track down his bike after it was stolen two days before he was due to leave for a cycling holiday in Menorca.

David Holloway, 72, was visiting the Lloyds bank in Leighton High Street around 9.30am on Wednesday, April 23 when his bike was taken despite being padlocked.

Cycling became one of David’s hobbies when he retired and he has travelled across North America and from John O’Groats to Land’s End on the bike.

He is willing to offer a reward of £200 for its safe return.

His daughter, Leonie Holloway, said: “It’s very valuable as it was specially made to fit to his height and weight. It also has a lot of sentimental value to him.

“He’s looking into whether he can hire a bike for the holiday. He’s desperately scrabbling around trying to sort something out.”

The bike is silver, with the brand name ‘Litespeed’ written in yellow along the frame.
