THE Devon Air Ambulance Trust's annual motorcycle ride out is set to take to the beautiful country lanes of Devon on Sunday. This year, there are three 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, fund-raising director of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust, said: "We always look forward to our annual motorcycle ride as it's 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 and 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 three starting points this will encourage more people to take part."

Five officers from the Devon & Cornwall Constabulary bike wing, will be taking part in the ride. The routes are all marshalled, ensuring that everyone goes the right way.
