Devon Freewheelers

We have chosen to support Devon Freewheelers as our event charity this year. They will also be providing the first aid at the event and have asked that everyone donates at least £2 into the collection at the event to cover their costs. We hope you will also choose to increase this donation or get sponsored for this worthy charity. Please do feel free to have extra fun and come in superhero fancy dress.

About the Charity

Devon Freewheelers are a team of 37 volunteer Emergency Vehicle drivers who are dedicated to providing a weekday out of hours service (17.00 – 06.00) and 24/7 weekend service supporting the NHS in delivering essential Blood, Samples, Medication and Donor Breast Milk to hospitals throughout Devon and Dorset.


Fancy dress is optional, this years theme is ‘superheroes

Those wishing to add an element of fun to the walk do feel free to come dressed as your favourite superhero, as a fitting nod to our event charity Devon Freewheelers.


To avoid congestion, the walk starts in groups, at 15-minute intervals, between 10.30am and 11.15am. Contact us if you wish to walk with friends already booked into a sold out slot.

Your e-ticket will indicate your own particular starting time, with detailed instructions for finding the starting location.

We anticipate that you will finish the walk between 4pm and 5.30pm. Walk at a leisurely pace and enjoy yourself – it isn’t a race!

Accessibility: There are quite a few stiles, steep gradients and rough ground. The route is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs.

Dogs: There may be some pregnant livestock, young babies and newly sown crops in some fields, so much as we love dogs here, we are unable to have dogs on this walk.

Dietary Requirements: Vegetarian alternatives to the meat dish are available if requested in advance. Other than that, we regret that we are unable to cater for special dietary requirements.

Children and babies (without pushchairs) are welcome, and may bring their own food and drink if required. There is no charge to accompany the walk for children bringing food, but the food and drink is provided only for paying customers!

Special requirements: If you have any special needs or limited mobility, or questions about whether the Gourmet Walk & Eat will be suitable for you, please contact us before buying your tickets via our contact page and we will happily discuss the practicality of the arrangements for you.
