The GRYO is back again in 2020! A fundraising challenge in aid of the Great North Air Ambulance Service … GYRO is an abbreviation of ‘GNAAS yearly ride out’ but is a cunning play on words with connotations to the gyroscopic effect of both bicycles and helicopters and also to the famous Italian grand tour!

The ride is the brain child of a small group of doctors and paramedics from the North East all of which are involved in the delivery of care to the sickest patients in the regions and who have seen first hand the difference that a world class pre-hospital care service can make. The Great North Air Ambulance is entirely charity funded and each year needs to raise in excess of 5 million pounds to continue providing life saving treatment.

Its hoped that people who are planning fundraising cycling events in aid of GNAAS will use the GYRO for this purpose so forget the C2C, come and take part in the GYRO and directly help The Great North Air Ambulance Service.
