Aug 9th was the 21st Annual Plymouth Megaride, which saw volunteers from Devon Freewheelers providing outriders at the front and rear of the ride-out.

6 Volunteers gave up there Sunday to take part in this annual event where we are given the opportunity to lead the ride along with Devon & Cornwall Police.

The event attracts several thousand bikers from across the UK with some riders coming from further afield. We enjoy supporting this event as we get to meet lots of people with similar backgrounds.

The route starts at Lee Mill before heading north up the A38 to the Marley Head junction where the bikes take the flyover and head south down the A38. Coming off at the Marsh Mills exit and heading into the city down the embankment.

The final destination where all the bikes park up is the Hoe, where entertainment is put on by the organisers, including live music and lots of side stands.

Devon Freewheelers volunteers manned our stall where members of the public were able to talk to us about the work we carry out, and have a sit on one of the response bikes.

We were unable to collect money in our normal collection pots, due to the event raising money for two other worthwhile causes, Dartmoor Rescue and Operation Henry further information can be read at there respective websites.

Below is the full video of the ride following the lead bikes.
