The show was the second to be hosted by the rider group, and chairman Andy Richardson said the day was ‘very good’. He added: “We had more bikes than last year, we are slowly building it up. We also had good weather, and a raised a good amount of money for our chosen charity - Devon Freewheelers - which we will make public in the weeks to come.”

Awards were also presented to participants in six categories - with Mike Vandeburg clinching the esteemed ‘Best in Show’ gong. The award was presented to Mike by Andy and Cranberry Farm’s Liz Osmond - as the pub chose the winner. The riders group meets on the last Friday of the month at Cranberry Farm, from 7pm to whenever members leave. Anyone who is interested can contact ‘Cranbrook Motorcycle Riders’ on Facebook.
