Ready, steady, go: the Edrington Asia Pacific team has endured weeks of training in preparation for the 500km cycle

A number of colleagues from Edrington Global Travel Retail will take part in the Ride for the Kaohsiung Autism Foundation, which takes place on 25 to 28 November.

The Kaohsiung Autism Foundation is a local non-profit organisation dedicated to the development of autistic children and supporting their families.

The cyclists take a well-earned break from their busy training schedule in Singapore

So far, NTD$2,312,492 (US $72,503) has been raised and the team is keen to hit US$100,000. As with last year’s cycle, Edrington will double-match every donation made.

Donations can be made here and more information on the ride can be found on Facebook or on the Instagram page @edringtoncharitycycle.
