Bikers ‘do it’ for Air Ambulance Charity

The Devon Air Ambulance Trust’s annual motorcycle ride out is set to take to the beautiful country lanes of Devon on Sunday 12th July.

This year however it’s a ride out with a twist, with 3 starting points, but only one finish.

Riders can choose to start from Coypool Park & Ride in Plympton, Cullompton Services or Atlantic Village, Bideford, with an amalgamated finish at Paignton Green. At Paignton Green there will be trade and exhibition stands, catering vans, together with live music from ‘Thick as Thieves’ and ‘Fizgig’.

Caroline Creer, Fundraising Director of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust said ‘We always look forward to our annual motorcycle ride as its a great opportunity to meet all the keen bikers, who are also supporting the charity. They recognise the essential service that the charity provides, as unfortunately we do regularly get called out to their fellow bikers.’

She added ‘This event isn’t just open to motorcyclists, we have people taking part on scooters, mopeds, trikes, to name just a few. Please come along and support this event and make it the biggest and best yet. We are ideally hoping for 500+ bikes and hope that by having 3 starting points this will will encourage more people to take part.

‘Even if you aren’t a biker, why not come along to Paignton Green as there is lots for all the family, plus the two bands performing are fantastic!’

Safety is paramount for bikers when out and about. Therefore the charity is also pleased to welcome 5 officers from the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary bike wing, who will be taking part in the ride. The routes are all marshalled, ensuring that everyone goes the right way.

Trade stands include the Road Safety Partnership, Police Exhibition Unit, Police Speed Enforcement motorcycle plus many more.

Trophies will be awarded for the Best British Bike, Best Modern Bike, and Best In Show.

The ride out will start at 10am, with registration on the day available from 9am. Entry is just £5 per bike, which includes a limited edition pin badge. However you can pre register and also purchase a limited edition t-shirt at just £7. T-shirts and badges are also available to pillion riders at £7.

Entry forms are available at www.daat.org
