Cycling doesn't stop at the end of summer and the East Devon coast is particularly good, alone or in a group. Cycle alongside the estuary into Axmouth, follow the coast through Branscombe, stop off at cafes / pubs, or attractions such as the Donkey Sanctuary. Take a ride on the cycleway from Sidford to Sidmouth seafront, on the Budleigh to Exmouth cycle route, ride from Seaton Promenade on the Stop Line Way route stretching to the county boundary, or try the Exe Estuary Trail in Exmouth, which skirts the beautiful Exe Estuary - your camera will be clicking non-stop.
For the more adventurous try a challenging ride on Exmouth's common; plunging down steep hills into Sidmouth; or take the bicycle friendly ferry from Starcross to Exmouth. Check out www.bikelands.co.uk
East Devon is a regular favourite on the Tour of Britain route.
Experience the walk of a Lifetime along the Jurassic Coast - an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (AONB) and impressive at any time of year. Exmouth to Axmouth is the home of Britain's most popular National Trail, The South West Coast Path. Discover outstanding views, tranquil estuaries and secret coves. Exmouth, with its ancient Triassic rocks, has fantastic walks along the Path. Follow the route through Budleigh Salterton to the red cliffs of Sidmouth. A spectacular route at Branscombe Mouth, famed for smuggling, leads to a chasm where Triassic earth gives way to striking white chalk at Beer Head. Continue over rich red cliffs of Seaton and out over the Axe wetlands. At Axmouth the spectacular Undercliffs NNR, one of the largest active coastal landslip systems in Western Europe, stretches 7 miles eastwards.
The Southwest Coast Path is one of the Top Walks of the World!
