Ax-Pedition is coming back for a second time on Sunday, September 11, challenging cyclists to put their abilities to the test and help raise money for local charities.

Last year, the event raised more than £6,500 and more than 370 riders took part.

This time the event will offer participants a choice of two routes - a 50km and 100k ride.

Hosted again by Axminster Town Football Club, in Tiger Way, there will also be a variety of stalls and stands including live bands and food throughout the day for riders, friends, family and the public. The Rotary Club and Axminster Tools and Machinery, who organise the event, have selected four local charities to receive donations this year - Exeter Leukaemia Fund (ELF), The Project, British Heart Foundation and HALFF.
