Garador takes Cyclists for a Ride

Leading garage door maker Garador organised an efficient transport system
to reunite hundreds of riders with their cars 50 miles away.
Garage door manufacturer Garador played its part in a recent major charity cycle ride.

Over 500 cyclists turned out to raise funds for the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance by cycling 54 miles from Watchet Harbour on the north Somerset coast down to West Bay on the south.

The problem was that most of the riders had arrived at Watchet bringing their bikes by car and trying to get so many riders and bikes reunited with their vehicles 50 miles away was a logistical challenge.

Garador decided it was a job for their distribution team. They provided a huge truck for transportation and also devised a unique trailer and pole system so that the bikes could easily be taken into the trailer and firmly secured for the journey.

“Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is a vital charity and we were delighted to be able to assist,” said Simon Hipgrave, managing director of Garador. “It was wonderful to see so many people taking part in this challenging event. It was also a tribute to our distribution team for their expertise in making it all work so smoothly.”
