Coast to Coast Cycle Ride

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.
