A number of workers from GDL Air Systems Ltd have decided to venture on a charity bike ride to raise as much money as they can for three very worthwhile charities: Cancer Research UK, Meningitis Now and the Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation Liver Transplant Unit.
They will be attempting to cycle the 98-mile Cheshire Ring Canal system in one day, covering six different canals.
Starting from Portland Basin in Ashton, they are travelling anticlockwise through Manchester City centre and Lymm to Preston Brook Junction, just outside Runcorn. From there, they will go past Anderton Boat Lift and through Middlewich to Hardings Wood Junction at Kidsgrove. From there, they will join the Macclesfield Canal and cycle through Congleton to Marple. From Marple, it is on the home leg on the Lower Peak Forest Canal back to Portland Basin.
Anyone wishing to donate to these vital causes can do so either by visiting their fundraising page or calling into GDL’s reception in person. GDL staff take this opportunity to thank you in advance for any donations.
