- UPDATE (20/11/13)
Stewart Gandy’s family have paid tribute to their loved one.
They said: ”Stewart had recently renewed his acquaintance with an “old friend” his bicycle.
“For many years, Stewart was a keen and highly proficient cyclist, winning many trophies when during his younger years he took part in competitive cycling as a member of the Crewe Clarion Cycling Club.
“Recently, he had taken up cycling again to help maintain his fitness but before doing so had ensured his bicycle was safe to ride by completely stripping it down, renewing important parts, incorporating extra safety features, a skill he had learnt over many years from working in a cycle shop.
A 36-year-old man has been bailed in connection with Mr Gandy’s death.
