The Jurassic Coast Bikers roared onto Seaton seafront yesterday (Sunday) - to kick start the resort’s annual Devon Air Ambulance week.

More than 300 motorcyclists, from all over the South West, enjoyed a ‘day out’ on the Esplanade.

Both bikers and hundreds of visitors enjoyed looking at an array of modern and classic bikes which included a Royal Enfield, Douglas Dragonfly, Velocette and an Ariel sidecar outfit.

Chris Treasise, from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, arrived on his fire service liveried Ducati to hand out safety information to the bikers

Devon Free Wheelers also brought one of their emergency response bikes which they use to transport medical supplies for the NHS.

Seaton’s mayor Gaynor Sedgwick judged the best bike of the day competition with a Harley Davidson Trike receiving the £50 prize.

Musical entertainment was provided by David Moore, the Appellation Mountain Band and the Hatherleigh Ukulele Bashers.

The Jurassic Coast Bikers thanked everyone who participated and contributed towards a very successful day.
