Cyclists of every description turned out for the 15th annual Devon Air Ambulance charity bike ride on Saturday, with hundreds of fundraisers using pedal power to support the cause. Last year’s event raised almost £4,000 for the charity, but cyclists taking on the 25-mile route this time around were looking to pedal past the total in record time. Starting at The Otter Inn, near Honiton, riders passed through the villages out towards Exeter, ticking off Buckerell, Feniton, Whimple, Talaton, Plymtree and Payhembury along the way. Competitors came from all over East Devon to take part in the charity cycle, and characters from the worlds of film, music and history were among those lining up at the start. Ahead of the race, the Honiton Indians team (pictured) were awarded first prize in the ‘best dressed’ competition, after one of their members – Emma Salter – raised around £100 in additional funds for the Air Ambulance.
