Cycling is a great way to see Devon at its best and will provide you with easy access to the county’s unspoilt natural heritage. Devon is renowned not only for its peace and beauty but also for the wide range and superb network of cycle routes that are available.
Ranging in length and difficulty, there are routes to suit every level of cycling experience and ability, each with its own special attractions. You will discover exciting off-road cycling, leisurely afternoon rides and challenging long-distance routes.
The National Cycle Network is a series of safe, traffic-free lanes and quiet on-road routes. In Devon, you will find over 150 miles of NCN routes.
Cycle West is an inspiring project that puts three routes on the map, two of which include stretches in Devon. Whatever your ability and experience, there’s a route for you to join and leave where you want, and revisit as often as you wish.
Devon County Council’s ‘Share this Space’ project encourages all highway users to do just this – be polite, courteous and take responsibility for your actions on roads and multi-use paths.
