Plymouth is perfectly positioned for the pedalling visitor on the crossroads of National Cycle Network routes and on the foothills of Dartmoor.
Perfect for pedallists, Route 27 of the National Cycle Network is known as the Devon Coast to Coast cycle route. A stretch of the Sustrans Route 27 in West Devon is the Drake’s Trail, a 21 mile cycling and walking route linking Tavistock with Plymouth.
This important part of Devon's recreational route network runs through superb countryside along the edge of Dartmoor, together with historical and heritage interest. The Trail also includes the long-established Plym Valley Trail, and creates a network of safe and easy cycling as well as mountain biking and walking opportunities for all the family to enjoy.
The annual Plymouth Gran Fondo is a challenge ride showcasing the finest elements of Plymouth, West Devon, Dartmoor and East Cornwall, from stunning coastal areas to magnificent historic houses and breath-taking landscapes. Or get on your bike and experience the wild beauty of Velodyssey, the Atlantic cycle route.
