Members of the Axe Valley Pedallers (AVP), the community cycling club, took a whistlestop trip to France.

A 21-strong group took the ferry to Brittany for a day’s cycling around Roscoff and Morlaix, following a planned route along a mixture of minor roads and off-road cycle paths through the beautiful Breton countryside.

Coffee was arranged in Saint-Pol-de-Leon and lunch was taken at the marketplace in Morlaix. From there, the group turned north along the widening estuary of the river Penze to the coast, before re-boarding the ferry for the return to Plymouth.

AVP’s chairman, Jonathan Read-Bone said: “The annual AVP ride to France has become something of a club institution and is always superbly organised by our avid team of French Forayers.”
