Seven members of the Axe Valley Pedallers (AVP) entered the 2009 Dartmoor Devil Audax cycle ride organised by Kevin Presland and members of the Devon section of the Cycle Touring Club (CTC), writes Alistair Cope.

It is an extremely well run event, which has stood the test of time for a ride at the end of October.

It is not specifically a fund- raising event, but Devon CTC raised £95 for Rapid UK a search and rescue charity. This year 25% of the 169 riders who started failed to finish.

However, all of the seven members of AVP completed the ride and are all feeling justifiably proud.

The members who took part were: Sebastian Cope, Trevor Yates, David Greenaway, Steve Norman, Clive Heard, Mike Wilkins and Alistair Cope.

Well done to the 'Magnificent Seven'.
