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. The Guardian newspaper has some online notes as well: “Long-distance for the laid-back cyclist: a ride along the edge of Dartmoor to Plymouth…”
