AXE VALLEY Pedallers are hosting a family treasure hunt on Sunday as part of National Bike WeekGroups are invited to get together and get on their bikes to take part in a fun treasure hunt, which includes some of Devon's finest countryside. Challenging clues will take riders on a journey around the historic town of Colyton. Those taking part can begin any time from 10.30am, starting at Road Green in Colyton and finishing at the same point for drinks and prizes. The event will raise money for the Devon Air Ambulance Trust and is organised by AVP's Charity Officer Seb 'Sono' Cope.Bike Week is the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK and runs until June 21. A national celebration of cycling, Bike Week helps people get more out of life - by getting on their bikes and exploring your local community. New for 2009, Bike Week focuses on encouraging families to taking up cycling as a regular activity in their local community. Bike Week is the time to "live local and get cycling." As part of its now annual contribution to the week, Axe Valley Pedallers hosted their fifth family cycle when an all- ability group of 79 congregated at Seaton Tourist Information Centre. Four rides of differing length and difficulty were offered and all re-assembled at the old concrete bridge at Axmouth harbour around midday for a group photo. The whole group cycled along the Esplanade with bells ringing and flags flying announcing the virtues of cycling in the Axe Valley. The group then cycled/pushed/walked their bikes up Castle Hill and onto Cliff Field Gardens for a cycling 'Picnic in the Park' which was just perfect, with sunshine, green lush grass, great company and of course the Axe Valley Pedallers banner! The day went really well and everyone got on so well together and the Pedallers are proud of their achievement and contribution to a celebratory week of cycling.Please visit to see what else your local and social cycling get up to! All are welcome to join in the fun.
