Cycling around Plymouth has so much to offer thanks to its diverse location. This maritime city has got it all and if you possess a bicycle, you have a free reign of the astounding surroundings. 

On the English Channel yet protected by two beautiful headlands, cycle routes from Plymouth lead you to fantastic coastal vistas. Ride down to Sutton Harbour and catch the Mountbatten Ferry to explore the hilly, verdant countryside around Wembury and the teeny village of Noss Mayo. 

Riding north east, before you’ve even warmed up you’ll find yourself in Dartmoor National Park. Quiet roads and trails allow you to explore this granite-strewn wilderness with joyful abandon and there’s always an old pub somewhere around the next corner. Pedal north west and the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty awaits, with its varied routes from secluded lanes to exhilarating off-road tracks.
