    The Tarka trail along the river taw is a flat disused railway line running from Braunton on the north shore to Bideford on the Torridge, it then continues through Torrington and on to Meeth. Flat and steady, well-surfaced path for riding, running, walking etc.

    Flat and easy to ride trail, we picked it up in Barnstaple and followed to Bideford. I am sure there are lovely views across the Estuary however we didn't get to enjoy them as there was a low sea mist the day we rode! Some nice little cafe stops along the way at old stations.

    You ‘start to get a feel’ that you are on a coastal adventure when you pass the North Devon Sailing Club at this point.
