Midday - the Ride Departs
We shall set off all together on one of three routes depending on the climatic conditions that prevail at the time. If possible, we'd like to take in a little sea air, as well as journey along the former routes of steam locomotion in the locality.
About 1:00 pm - ish
Somewhere around 1:00 o'clock we shall find ourselves at a venue that will take you back in time and tickle your taste buds in a truly titillating manner. Although rather early in the day and somewhat breaking established etiquette, we shall take tea and converse. We deplore being rushed at this moment and so shall relax and indulge our senses.
Exactly 2:43 pm
We shall depart with military precision and make our way in a truly inspiring manner, cycling as if we had entered a synchronised cycling competition.
Our journey will take us to the heart of Exmouth once more, where our skillful cycling style will inspire the ladies of the Renaissance choir to accompany our pedalling pageant.
Utterly Precisely at 3:30 pm
Dear Riders, We have the main stage for a few minutes in order to acknowledge the winners of our various competitions! Fame & glory awaits!
Enough of this frivolity we hear you sing, we need some inner warmth! Fear not dear Riders, as good cheer awaits.
3:45 pm Cycle for Cyder!
We shall at this time bid fare well to the adoration
of the amassed crowds and secure our place at
The Grapevine, a hostelry of a fine reputation who will then impart the juice of fermented apples that have been gently warmed in a seasonal manner. Another seasonal moment will be the serving of mince pies to further revive us and so, we will all be of good cheer!
4:30 pm - Charity Draw - Headway Devon
The charity draw for Headway Devon will take place at The Grapevine and gosh, what goodies await!
Now the official end of the 4th Ringtons Velo Vintage will be after the charity draw, however the evening continues as the Christmas Cracker goes on until 10:00pm and many of us are going to settle down and enjoy a Christmas Dinner at The Grapevine, no doubt popping out to watch the fireworks at 9:00 pm!

As there is the remote possibility that the weather may be a tad inclement we have arranged indoor venues for our little stops for refreshment, sustenance and amusement, therefore numbers will sadly have to be restricted, probably to only 150 riders.
