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 two 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.
What we provide is:
Good accommodation for two or three nights
Luggage transfers each day, so you need only cycle with your daily snacks and toolkit
Pre-tour and on-tour advice and information
Return transport to your cars in Exeter

Fantastic gentlemans holiday, enough exercise to make it a challenge but still plenty of time to sit in a good pub in the evening and discuss the day's adventures. Jon was a fantastic help with his knowledge of the route and sorting out all of the niggles with the bikes for us.

All the effort Cycleactive have put in with their experience made it a more enjoyable one for me. Will recommend to all my friends whether they cycle or not (like me).Keep it up !
