A new fleet vehicle is the latest addition to the Bloodbike armoury of tools in the form of a fully functional ambulance which has been decommissioned from an emergency response vehicle and adapted and restored to operate as a first aid medical facility, to be used as a support vehicle when Freewheeler volunteer first aiders offer their services to cover community social events.

The team back at DFW HQ have worked tirelessly to transform the ambulance, making it fit for purpose; it is now be a shining beacon to facilitate expertise where hopefully it’s not needed. The vehicle is fully equipped for first aid and responder requirements and is now available for hire as a complete unit which is self contained.

It was first used whilst the paint was still wet at the Seaton Cycle festival on 11th June, where various categories of cyclist battled against the elements to complete lap races along the esplanade taking some gruelling hills, offering quite a spectacle with some exciting, but hairy cornering.

Fortunately there weren’t to many mishaps but those that did come a cropper had the reassurance that the first aid team were on hand spread along the race route, backed up by first responders to mobilise quickly to any part of the route and local area in general.
