A DEVASTATED family are offering a �200 reward for information that leads to the return of a bike that was stolen from them while they were holidaying in St Neots.
The silver and red Kona King Kikapu bike worth �3,000 was ripped from the roof rack of a trailer parked at the camping and caravanning club in Hardwick Road.
It was stolen overnight on Monday (August 24) from the Bishop family who had travelled from Rutland for a holiday in St Neots.
The theft left the family so upset that they cut their holiday short and returned home.

Speaking to the Hunts Post, Heidi Bishop said: "We felt so violated that all we wanted to do was go home. Clearly these people knew what they were looking for and just took it without a thought for anyone else."
Mrs Bishop said the bike belonged to her husband, Martin who is a sergeant in the RAF and uses it for expeditions and to compete in mountain bike races for the RAF.

She said: "It's not just about its value, the bike is also sentimental to us and we are really upset that it has been stolen.
"It's a pretty flashy bike and has Easton carbon fibre handlebars, Hope Mono Mini disc brakes, USE Alien aluminium seat post and a Selle Italia leather saddle.
"Someone must know who has it and I would appeal for them to come forward."
Mrs Bishop said the theft had upset her five-year-old daughter Freya and had left her 10-year-old autistic son, Evan, "traumatised".
She said: "This was our first visit to St Neots and we were looking forward to a lovely family cycling holiday, visiting nearby parks and Grafham Water but these evil thieves ruined it for us."
