Dave joined Devon Freewheelers in Feb 2013, as a rider I am part of the team that keeps the charitys IT working as it should. I also bleed members for articles that we can post on the site. Ride safe everyone.
The Trustees would like to take this opportunity to thank Daniel Lavery for his dedicated service since founding the charity in 2009. Dan has now stepped down to seek full time employment and more time with his wife Shelley and Family. Dan has assured us he will carry on riding with the charity and to be seen at fundraising events in the near future.
Devon Freewheelers would like to thank local business man John Capon, owner of Otter Windows in Honiton for providing and sponsoring the charities new fundraising van, a Citreon Nemo Enterprise. The van is used to promote the charity and to carry fundraising equipment to events all year around, in bad weather conditions it has also been used to carry out vital blood runs.

What may seem like a mundane subject was a ride of 400 miles to see a specialist Dr to hopefully solve some of the issues I have from my back. It gave me the opportunity to admire our great county and compare it with the others along the way.
