Our cycling holidays in Devon & Cornwall are an exciting way of getting to know this rural part of Britain. The area is a popular holiday destination among the English due to its warm sunny weather, rolling landscapes and interesting northern and southern coastlines. The area isn't completely flat and does have some hills; however a lot of our cycle routes follow old railway lines which means the gradients are fairly gentle. Travelling by bike in this region allows you to get your teeth into authentic English countryside and some pretty dramatic scenery. Think big skies, green vales, rugged moors, soaring viaducts and cool tunnels. The team at The Carter Company are particularly fond of the attractive waterside cycling along the Tawe estuary. We highly recommend it!
En route, you can soak up the laid-back pace of life of Devon & Cornwall as you wind your way through pretty villages with thatched cottages. The local culture is well known for its delicious cream teas and there is a thriving organic food movement in the area. Most tours start from Barnstaple and travel to Ilfracombe in the north or Plymouth on the south coast, taking in lovely towns like Tavistock along the way.Please visit The Carter Company website for more information
