Challenge will see around 1,000 entrants taking on a cycling marathon.
A NORTH Devon charity is urging people to get on their bikes for a cycling marathon in October.
The annual Exmoor Beast Challenge will see around 1,000 cyclists taking on the challenge to help Go North Devon provide mobility services to people who cannot use public transport.
Ring & Ride driver Terry Chapple is used to sitting behind the wheel of a bus, but is taking on the challenge this year.
He said: “Two years ago I managed 20 miles on a bike and it nearly killed me, so this is going to be a massive challenge.
“However, I’m sure if I can take up the extra challenge of helping to raise funds for a worthwhile organisation that helps so many people then anyone can.”
The Out and About Club run by the charity takes passengers on a variety of outings and allows them to enjoy lunches and day trips around North Devon.
