Cyclists saddled up for this year’s annual bike ride in Honiton for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.

There were plenty of colourful costumes on display during the event on Saturday, May 3, which started from the Otter Inn pub, Weston. More than 300 people took part in the 25-mile cycle ride, which included eight stops along the way.

Organiser Adrian Phillips said: “It was very well attended. We want to say a big thank you to everyone who took part and supported the event.”

The cycle ride raised more than £2,000 with sponsorship money still coming in. Over the last 15 years the annual bike ride has rasied more than £25,000 for the Devon Air Ambulane Trust.

However, on the day three safety road signs were taken.
