Ilfracombe to Plymouth - South West England

102 miles over 2 or 3 days

Cycle from the craggy cliffs of Ilfracombe to the port of Plymouth on this beautiful journey through rural Devon. The route from north to south coast follows traffic free cycle paths, backroads and cycle lanes as it winds through rolling countryside, over historic railway viaducts, through tunnels and skirts the boundary of the stunning Dartmoor National Park. A mountain bike / hybrid bike is best suited for this route.
When ridden over 2 days the 102 miles is a fabulous weekend challenge, but one that can be achieved with a bit of training and preparation. The three day journey is a great option for newcomers to cycling or families as it allows either a steadier pace of riding or plenty of time to rest, explore on foot and take pictures. Each departure date has both options available.
With over a decade of proven success with C2C holidays, the same recipe of organisation and service has been applied here to ensure that you get a truly memorable and enjoyable cycling experience.
