Garador supports the Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge!

Last Sunday the 14th May, the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance held their annual Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge and Garador were delighted to support them with transportation for bicycles between the finish and start of the event.

Now in its third year the event was bigger and better than ever, with 580 cyclists taking part, including lots of youngsters and people on tandem bikes as well as regular ones. The organisers have setup the event with two different routes, a longer 54 mile route for more experienced riders which runs from the North Somerset town of Watchet to the seaside town of West Bay, as well as a shorter 11 mile route.

The weather certainly helped by staying mostly dry, providing favourable conditions for the cyclists and bringing out many family and friends to offer their support and encouragement at Watchet, West Bay and various other points along the cycle route. Let’s hope for another really successful event next year!
