Doing our bit for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance

Cyclists line up to transport their bikes back to the start of the event

We were absolutely delighted to continue our support of the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance last weekend, with their annual Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge! It's such a fantastic event which raises much needed funds for the air ambulance, so we were really pleased to be able to provide our lorries again to help transport cyclists from the finish back to the start of the event.
Money is still coming in for the charity event, but over £45,000 has already been received. Hundreds of cyclists took part, giving there all to the gruelling 55 mile ride across Somerset and Dorset
As in previous years, the route started from Watchet in North Somerset and finished in West Bay on the Dorset Coast. Each of the Garador lorries have a custom built storage system that makes it so bikes can be easily wheeled into our lorries and firmly secured for the journey. Our drivers also gave their time and helped to ensure all the participants could easily get back to Watchet and find their cars after the ride.
