PHOTOS: Bideford Bike Show returns for 2021

Bideford Bike Show returned for its seventh year on Saturday, drawing thousands of visitors to Bideford Quay.

The show took over Bideford Quay and the Riverbank Car Park on Saturday and ran from noon to 6 p.m.

The biggest show of its kind in North Devon, the Bideford Bike Show is usually held on the last bank holiday Saturday in May each year, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic this year took place on Saturday 28th August.

The first Bideford Bike Show took place in 2014 and proved an instant hit. The organizers of the first show expected 500 bikes, but an incredible 1,500 showed up.
