Did you know that you can hire Brompton folding bikes at Exeter St Davids station - very useful for getting about in Exeter if you can't, or don't want, to take your bike on the train. And just as useful if you are taking the train from Exeter, as you'll have no trouble getting it onto the train, and can then use it at your destination!

To encourage use of the Brompton Dock in the station car park, Sustainable Crediton is teaming up with CTC Exeter and Brompton Dock to organise a day out. Here is the plan:

A 10 mile ride from Exeter to Exmouth along the Exe Estuary Trail, with options to return by train.

Meet 10.00 a.m. outside Exeter St Davids Station. Arrive early to collect your bike from Brompton Dock.

Tea stop at Topsham's Route 2 cafe.

Lunch at Exmouth.

Return to Exeter by train (or cycle back) by about 4.00 p.m.

For free Brompton Dock cycle hire for the day, with membership for £1register beforehand using this promo code: EXE2013

Please email John Skrine if you intend to come, as it's not possible to book a bike more than a day in advance, and we'd like to know how numbers are coming along.
