Cycling is a great way to keep fit, and explore the wonderful East Devon villages and countryside. There are also social and environmental benefits such as reduced congestion and pollution, improved quality of life in local communities and general economic and social benefits of a healthier population...


Exmouth is perfectly located for many interesting places to cycle including the Exe Estuary, magnificent coastline and the countryside of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Exmouth lies on the National Cycle Route Number 2 that will eventually link Dover in Kent with St Austell in Cornwall. In Devon, Route 2 does currently link Dawlish, Exeter, Sidmouth and Seaton with Lyme Regis in West Dorset.

Locally, there is an easy family cycling path along the former railway line between Exmouth and Budleigh Salterton (about 5 miles/8 km) and from the head of the Exe Estuary along the canal into Exeter (4 miles/7 km). For more information, please visit: National Cycle Network

You can also download a leaflet showing cycle routes to Exeter along the Exe Estuary here.
