In July, Laura and I cycled from Barnstaple to Pymouth,
with one overnight stop in Okehampton.
We took our cycles to Barnstaple on the Tarka Line. The
first part was along the Tarka Trail, so was very easy going.
Then came a somewhat hillly section along minor roads to our B
& B in Okehampton.
Day 2 started on the Granite Way to Lydford (the
old railway to Plymouth), with lovely views across to
Dartmoor, and then after another hilly section near Tavistock, we
came to the Plym Valley Trail which takes one onto
Plymouth through the beautiful Plym woods. Then to Plymouth
station and back by train.
If you enjoy cycling, I strongly recommend this Coast to
Coast ride. It is well signposted.
