Taking place throughout Birmingham and the surrounding areas Velo Birmingham were looking for one company to fulfill their transport requirements for their large event.
The event consisted of 15,000 cyclists including sporting professionals, newbies, and charity fundraisers, all with the desire to complete the picturesque and challenging 100-mile course.
Velo Birmingham needed a large amount of minibuses along with 2 drivers on each to cater for cyclists who dropped off the course and could not carry on. The client needed these 2 drivers to comply with the specifications that there must be no breaks on board the service. Therefore, in order to comply with legal driving hours we provided the solution of 2 alternating drivers. Executive/luxury facilities were not required here therefore standard minibuses, perfect for A to B travel, needed to be sourced.
