Garador Steps Up for the Ride

Hundreds of fundraising cyclists have been successfully returned to their departure point thanks to the efforts of leading garage door manufacturer Garador.

The Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge is a major fundraising event to support the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance. This year’s event, in May, saw cyclists of all ages, from 79 to 9 years old, taking part, riding the 54 miles from Watchet in North Somerset to West Bay on the Dorset south coast. But after completing the ride, they needed to get back to their cars.

Garador stepped in by sending their large capacity lorries to transport the cyclists and their bikes back to their starting point.

“We were delighted to be able to help out,” said Garador’s Managing Director Neil Discombe. “Our vehicles are equipped with special access systems so that the bikes could easily be wheeled into the lorries and firmly secured for the journey. Our drivers gave their time for free and successfully transported the cyclists and their bicycles back to their cars.
“The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance plays a vital role in the local community, and it is wonderful that so many cyclists were willing to tackle the very challenging route to raise so much money for this very worthwhile cause,” he added.

Bill Sivewright, Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Chief Executive Officer, praised the efforts of the cyclists and all those who were involved in the organisation of the day.
“Despite the best efforts of the weather to put us off, this year’s Coast to Coast Cycle Challenge was very successful,” he said. “I take my hat off to every single rider.”
