Tally ho! All are welcome. A number have asked about modern bicycles too - yes! Decorate them to match with times past. Baskets and bells et cet era. Come suitably attired 20's - 50's style. Tweed is good and ladies and gentlemen with hats/helmets. Military and old university is also popular. It doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg to dress appropriately. Charity shops are very useful and great value! Old bicycles, tandems, tricycles are beautiful and to be preferred. Certainly older style if at all possible. Flowers, flags, bunting and bells but make sure you're safe and sound! There might be prizes for best dressed lady and gentleman! Bacon rolls and juice available upon registration. Parade around the lawn and through delightful streets and paths. For those with more than one gear and legs to match, you may be tempted towards Turf locks for a quick drink and return to Dawlish. The Sunday is part of Dawlish Heritage Day with Great Storm of 2014 exhibition and museum with choir and art deco jazz band. Bring your own picnic with blanket and baskets. Vintage buses will be coming through every half hour via Teignmouth. Be prepared for many photographs and smiles all round. Lovely!
