Some 25 bicycle enthusiasts congregated opposite Ocean on Sunday, June 21 – while maintaining a social distance from each other – to celebrate cycling.

People took along their bikes and filled in a thought bubble with what they want for cyclists in Exmouth.

A spokesman for the event said: “Now vehicles are back on the roads we want to remind people what fun cycling can be and ask them to consider how essential every car journey is when it is polluting the streets and reliant on fossil fuels.”

Exmouth grandmother Jane Habermehl added: “Cycling has so many advantages for getting around town as long as it can be done safely, and lowers your carbon footprint.”
