Garador were delighted to support the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance service in their annual ‘Coast to Coast Charity Cycle Ride’ which was held on Sunday 15th May 2016. This year, there were 539 riders taking part and Garador supported the charity event by providing three of their 18 ton lorries to help transport bicycles from West Bay in Dorset to Watchet Harbour in North Somerset.
The challenging 54 mile cycle ride began in Watchet Harbour in North Somerset and ran all the way to East Beach car park, West Bay Harbour near Bridport in Dorset. Air ambulance officials were very impressed with the equipment for transporting used to transport the bikes and the care and attention taken by the drivers when loading and unloading.
Bill Sivewright, CEO of the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance commented ‘The riders were delighted to be reunited with their ‘trusty steeds’ delivered so carefully by your goodselves [Garador]’
The weather certainly helped and brought out many of the cyclist’s family and friends who came along to offer their support and encouragement at Watchet Harbour, West Bay and various points along the way. Over £54,000 has been raised as part of the Coast to Coast Charity Cycle Ride thus far and Garador has been delighted to support such a worthy and important cause.
