National Cycle Network

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.

The ‘Devon Coast to Coast’ links Ilfracombe in the north with Plymouth in the south, taking in breath-taking coastal, moorland and country views along the way. Part of the ‘West Country Way’ runs alongside the tranquil Grand Western Canal where wildlife abounds.  Keep your eyes open and you may catch sight of kingfishers and dragonflies.
