Hundreds of people took part in a marathon bicycle ride last weekend, to raise money for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT).
The popular event was in its 19th year, and is organised by the Phillips family of Honiton.
The 26-mile ride, which set off from the Otter Inn in Weston on Saturday features six stops around East Devon.
A barbecue lunch was also held at The Thirsty Farmer in Whimple, before a hog roast and live music at the Otter Inn.
Many of those taking part wore fancy dress for the event.
