A cycling team from the Western Link project which includes volunteers from both National Grid and ScottishPower Transmission, along with representatives from the project’s construction consortium of Siemens and Prysmian, is taking part in the project's fundraising event 'The Big Ride 2014', to raise funds for Cancer Research UK and Macmillan Cancer Support.
From 5 to 8 September, the cyclists will mirror the 420 kilometre cable route by cycling over 500 kilometres from its northernmost point, at the Hunterston converter station site, to our Flintshire Bridge converter station site in North Wales.
