AN annual bike show will be taking place in Ilfracombe this weekend.
The show, organised by the North Devon branch of the Motorcycle Action Group, runs between noon and 4pm on the sea front near the Landmark Theatre.
A variety of road safety groups will be at the show to publicise the safe driving message.
Also, for those wanting to learn to ride a motorcycle, Devon Wheels to Work will be available to explain the intricacies of the necessary test.
Local area action group representative Doug Smith said: “This is our second Ilfracombe Bike Show and we are excited that the MAG and the Ilfracombe marketing group have worked together to create this event.
“MAG has had a lot of support from local businesses who have sponsored the trophies, and the Ilfracombe town mayor who will be presenting a Mayor’s Choice award.
“This is an unusual event in that the motorcyclists have worked together with non-motorcyclists to create the bike show, and it’s a model that we can be continue for the foreseeable future.
“We have been working hard to publicise the event and despite this being a one day show, we have MAG members from around the region who are coming to Ilfracombe and staying overnight locally.
“I trust that we will have a similar commitment to support the event from motorcyclists who live in the North Devon area.”
Any motorcyclist wishing to take part can just turn up on the day.
All proceeds from the event are being donated to the Devon Air Ambulance Trust, Motorcycle Outreach and the Motorcycle Action Group.
