Route Overview:

Distance (Miles): 63

Useful Information:

Summary: 63 miles of hills and happiness
Route Description:

Where does it start? Woolacombe

Where does it end? Bridgwater

How long is it? 63 miles

 

Why is it great? 

It’s one of the most uninterrupted coastal runs in the country, passing through cliff-top moorland at the top of Exmoor National Park, down the steepest of hills and having some quaint Devonshire villages to stop at on route.

 

What do I need to know?

From Woolacombe, the route runs along the A3123 to Berry Down Cross, then hang a left at Blackmoor Gate to pick up the A39 that you’ll remain on for the next 50miles, all the way into Bridgwater. A good deviation is to take the side roads in the direction of Martinhoe, turning left immediately after the Lynton and Barnstaple Narrow Gauge Railway Adventure centre (when riding west to east), heading down to the cliff tops and then down through the narrow lanes, past Lee Abbey with the £2 donation box, and on through the stunning Valley of the Rocks, before coming out at the back of Lynton. 

 

Anything Else?

There are some lovely villages on the way; Lynton and Lynmouth, then Porlock a little further along. The harbour front of Lynmouth is particularly pleasant, with a good selection of eateries. Watch the hill down into Porlock – it’s steep and twisty, especially the last corner. The road flattens out from there all the way into Bridgwater, which is a big town with a sizeable Riders of Bridgwater bike shop complete with a good value cafe. Continue onto Land’s End using only coastal roads for the ultimate coastal adventure.
