A British woman taking part in a charity bicycle ride to raise money in memory of her brother who died in Iraq was struck by a car in Revelstoke Monday afternoon.

At about 3:15 p.m. Monday, Revelstoke Fire Rescue Service and BC Ambulance responded to a report of a collision on Victoria Road near the ESSO station.

“The investigation has determined that the cyclist was riding on the sidewalk and surprised the driver who was exiting from a gas station,” said RCMP Cpl. Rod Wiebe. “The resulting collision bruised the leg of the 30-year-old female from Britain.”

No charges were laid in the incident but the RCMP is saying the incident is a reminder to cyclists that is illegal to ride on the sidewalk.
