The Ride Out will be followed with an afternoon of live music, trade stalls and refreshment stands on the Den, Teignmouth. The bikers are expected to arrive at lunchtime with live music starting at 1pm. The afternoon of live music is free for all to attend and DAA warmly encourages friends and families of the bikers to come along and join them for a fun filled afternoon, as well as biker enthusiasts, holiday makers and locals looking for a great day out.

DAA have an excellent line up of live music for the afternoon, including Littermouth from 1pm, Five Finger Discount at 2pm, Thick as Thieves at 3pm and The Rock Section at 4pm. Big Bear Recordings will kindly be providing the tech for the afternoon.

Devon Air Ambulance Fundraising Director Caroline Creer added “We would like to thank all of our regular supporters who join us year on year for this great day out and we also look forward to welcoming lots of new faces. Every year the event has a great atmosphere enjoyed by bikers and non-bikers alike. We’d like to thank Bridge Motorcycles for sponsoring the event and Trago Mills for once again supporting the start. We’re really excited to be returning to the Den, which we know is a brilliant venue for the event.”

Bridge Motorcycles Director Anthony Lee added ““Motorcycles are, above all, a lifestyle where family, passion and technical innovation meet. The passion for motorcycles runs in my blood with both my Father and Grandfather having worked at Bridge Motorcycle. I truly believe that two wheels move the soul, and this is why we feel it is so important to support charities like DAA who help motorcyclists in their time of need!”
