Paraplegic's Cycling Fundraiser Thwarted by French Red Tape

Seriously, what's legal in that country?


PARALYSED fundraiser Claire Lomas has had to put the breaks on her Paris to London cycle challenge after being told she would be unable to collect cash in France.

The adventurous 32-year-old from Eye Kettleby, who famously completed the London Marathon using a robotic suit earlier this year, was due to cycle 250 miles between the two countries using a specially adapted bike next April to raise money for Spinal Research.

However French authorities told her that she cannot ask people for donations while she is in the county.
