A team from Aico, the market leader in Fire & Carbon Monoxide detection will be taking part in a 247 mile Charity Bike Ride this September to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.

The charity event will see 41 people from Aico, Ei Electronics and Denmans joining forces to ride from Aico’s headquarters in Shropshire to the Ei Electronics factory in Shannon, Ireland.

All the riders will be taking on the mammoth 4 day trek travelling from Oswestry in Shropshire, through Snowdonia, Holyhead, Dublin, Birr, ending finally in Bunratty, just outside Shannon in Ireland.

‘We are really excited to be taking on this challenge’ stated Neal Hooper, Managing Director of Aico. ‘The British Heart Foundation is a charity that we all wanted to support and a great opportunity for us to all get into shape.’

The team consists of a range of abilities including some experienced riders and others who are taking to the saddle for the first time.

Michael Wright, Marketing Manager at Aico explained ‘It’s going to be a tough ride, but it’s a sturdy team and for a cause that’s close to our hearts. The longest stage is from Dublin to Birr covering nearly 84 miles in one day.’

The ride starts on the Wednesday 13th September and ends on Saturday 16th September. If you would like to give your support to the riders and British Heart Foundation you can donate at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/aico-ei.
