Hundreds of Motorbike riders will be lining up at Atlantic Village in Bideford on Sunday for the annual b2b motorcycle ride in aid of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust.The event plans to build on last year's success when the 65-mile ride starts from Atlantic Village at 10:15am, riding through the beautiful Devon countryside and parking up at Exeter Racecourse at Haldon Hill, Exeter. With more than 350 bikers taking part last year, the Devon Air Ambulance Trust is looking to improve on that with at least 500 bikes getting involved.For those who need to build up their strength before the day's ride the Pasty Presto Cafe and Atlantic Restaurant will be open from 8am so all riders and pillion passengers can tuck into a cooked breakfast before registering at 9am if you haven't already done this on line. When everyone has completed the ride, there will be fun for all the family in the form of refreshments, live music from 'The Bob Katz'. Trophies will be up for grabs for 'best Classic Bike' and 'Best Modern Bike', but you have to take part to win, so visit www.atlanticvillage.co.uk or www.daat.org.

We really value the essential work of the Trust and we're delighted to be able to further develop our good working relationship with the charity. With hundreds of participants expected at the Village on the 13th July it looks like being a real spectacle for everyone involved - and all our shoppers as well!"Helena Holt, Chief executive of the Devon Air Ambulance Trust adds, "We are delighted that the b2b ride has become an established part of the summer events programme in the county and is growing year on year. We'd like to thank Atlantic Village and all other participants involved, as without their help the event would not be possible."Entry is £10 per bike which includes a limited edition t-shirt and pin badge.
