DC2C Itinerary Introduction

The Cycling - Introduction

The Devon Coast to Coast is a north to south ride from the craggy cliffs that overlook Ilfracombe to the imposing citadel at Plymouth’s bustling seafront. Along the way you follow many old railway lines, riding over viaducts and through tunnels, as well as contouring around the beautiful Dartmoor National Park. Whilst the route has no climbs on the scale of the classic C2C across the north of England, there are numerous shorter climbs on the rolling backroads of mid-Devon.


• Quiet backroads and traffic-free cycleways
• Bag transfers so you can cycle light
• Logistics planned for you, so you can focus on the cycling
• Cycle through the beautiful Dartmoor National Park
• Emergency mechanical breakdown support
