Hundreds of bikes glistened on Bideford Quay at the annual Bideford Bike Show took place on Saturday.

Despite some rain, thousands of people flocked to Bideford to admire the bikes and trikes on display.

Now in its fifth year, the bike show always sees a huge turnout, raising thousands-of-pounds for local charities.

She said: “To think five years ago, when this was just an idea, we hoped around 300 bikes; we were amazed how many turned out.

“There were bikes parked anywhere and everywhere we could fit them in.

“The money we have raised has been astonishing for all the very worthy charities.

“It takes a lot of work and months of planning to put this event on and to know everyone enjoys the day and comes back year on year shows we are doing something right!
