This is the fully updated and revised 2nd edition of the definitive guidebook to one of the most popular long distance cycling routes in the UK, and now in full colour throughout. All the information you need to complete this 100 mile signed cycle route across Devon, the guide features: detailed full-colour mapping; accommodation listed and mapped; eating spots and places of interest; bike shops, tourist information and lots more; and, full colour photos. Cycle from the rocky coves and cliffs of fishing port Ilfracombe on Devon's north coast to the docks and impressive harbours of maritime Plymouth, experiencing a bewildering variety of scenery in between. The wide, sandy expanses of the Taw and Torridge estuaries are followed by rolling green hills, then the eerie tors of western Dartmoor. A final descent down the Plym Valley brings you to your journey's end. The route uses some of the country's finest dedicated cycle paths, developed by the sustainable transport charity Sustrans. These include the Tarka and Plym Valley Trails and the Granite Way. They are linked by quiet minor roads and bridleway tracks, making the route suitable for leisure riders, mountain bikers and tourers.
Is there a more varied and beautiful 100 mile cycle route in the country? It's hard to think of one. This is a great short break or a weekend challenge.
