Airport staff to take on gruelling cycle
DUNDEE Airport staff are to take part in a gruelling cycle challenge to raise funds for charity.
Three air traffic controllers and one member of the airport’s fire service will cycle more than 140 miles from Dundee Airport to Inverness Airport.
A fifth cyclist who works for Perth and Kinross Council will also take part in the challenge, while another air traffic controller will be the team’s support driver.
The team will set off from Dundee Airport on Friday morning and plan to camp overnight at Blair Atholl and south of Aviemore before reaching Inverness Airport on Sunday afternoon.
They hope to raise more than £1,000 for Multiple Sclerosis Society Scotland, The National Autistic Society, Yorkhill Children’s Foundation, West of Scotland Deaf Children’s Society and Cancer Research UK.
Inverness Airport manager Graeme Bell said: “All the staff at Inverness Airport look forward to welcoming the cyclists on Sunday as they reach their final destination.
“We applaud the Dundee Airport staff for their training in preparation for the cycle challenge and wish them all the luck in completing the task for their chosen charity.”
