AXE Valley Pedallers will be running five bike rides during National Bike Week.

The trips on Sunday, June 10, will start at 10 am and vary from short and flat routes, to longer, hilly ones.

Chairman of the club Alistair Cope said "Now is the time to get your bike out of the shed, pump up the tyres, drop a little oil onto the chain and join the Axe Valley Pedallers.

"It would be great to see as many new faces as possible on what always turns out to be a brilliant fun day."

The Pedallers meet in the car park next to the Tram Station, at the Underfleet in Seaton.

* National Bike Week is an annual opportunity to promote cycling and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life. Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people to give cycling a go all over the UK. This year the theme is 'everyday cycling for everyone', which is very close to the motto of Axe Valley Pedallers 'Cycling for All'.
