Cycling in Devon
Devon Cycle Hire is just outside Okehampton off the A30. We are half an hour from Exeter & only an hours drive from The Eden Project, Cornwall.
Hiring a bike and getting out into the beautiful Devon countryside couldn't be easier. Come along to our centre and enjoy traffic free cycling with amazing views of Dartmoor. We have bikes for all the family adults, kids, babies, electric bikes and even a trailer for dogs. We also have tandems and tag alongs and of course we can supply helmets too. Half an hour from Exeter, just off the A30 you can cycle a wonderful traffic free, fairly level trail over two spectacular viaducts and enjoy a picnic or pub meal on route.
We have free customer parking, toilets and a small shop selling accessories and refreshments. For 2014 opening times and prices click here.
Devon Cycle Hire is situated directly on The Granite Way, part of Devonʼs Coast to Coast route - Route 27. The Granite Way is a mainly traffic free cycle route, with plans to make it totally traffic free in the not too distant future, running between Okehampton and Lydford. Itʼs family friendly, well surfaced with lots to see and do. There are breathtaking views and plenty of refreshment stops on route. Devon cycle routes donʼt come much better than The Granite Way.
EXCITING NEWS the 'missing link' of The Granite Way at Bridestowe Station will be open this week!!!! Devon Cycle Hire have been told that this new section will be fully open this week, this is great news and will mean the trail is traffic free all the way down to Lydford! Well done to everyone who made this happen.
