Doing our bit to support the Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge

Garador providing transport for cyclists bikes at the 2021 Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge


After last year’s event was cancelled because of the pandemic, we were thrilled to hear that the Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge was back on for 2021. Taking place in Dorset and Somerset, the challenge raises funds for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and this year’s event saw hundreds of cyclists riding across both counties for the charity.

The challenge kicked off at 11am on Sunday 5th September with around 600 fund-raising cyclists riding along two routes to the finishing line in West Bay. There was the option of a longer 55 mile route, for more experienced cyclists and a shorter 11 mile route. The 55 mile stretch began in Watchet and ended in West Bay, whilst the 11 mile stretch began in Drimpton and ended in West Bay.

We were delighted to provide transport to ensure all the bikes could be taken back to the starting point after the event. Using our fleet of delivery vehicles, we helped the cyclists get their bikes back to the starting line and our delivery drivers were on hand to help the cyclists get their bikes in the back of each vehicle. The entire thing went off without a hitch and around 600 bikes were successfully delivered to the right places at the right time.

We've been supporting the event since 2014. It’s such an important charity which saves lives, flying those with life-threatening medical emergencies direct to hospital, and so we were more than happy to offer our assistance for this important local charity.
