Public Inquiry Threatens Completion of 100 mile Coast-to-Coast Cycle Trail

Vocal opposition from a small number of local protesters threatens to derail plans to complete the National Cycle Network Route 27 Coast-to-Coast trail between Plymouth and Ilfracombe.
Plym Valley Cycle Trail

Known as the Devon Coast-to-Coast route, 78 of the 103 miles follow off-road traffic-free trails, mainly using well-surfaced track beds of former railways.

These trails take you gently from sea-level to the elevated plateau of mid Devon and the western fringes of Dartmoor, avoiding most of the sharp gradients (and traffic) of Devon’s road network. The Clearbrook Ramp (pictured below) is the exception.

Support new mountain biking trails in Devon

More off-road trails could be coming to Devon if a National Trust plan receives enough support.

The National Trust has recently submitted a planning application for new mountain biking trails at Plymbridge in Devon. This is a fantastic opportunity for off-road cycling in Plymouth as having this facility and the investment that comes with it will create new trails and encourage new cyclists.

To show your support, all you have to do is take a couple of minutes to go to the Plymouth City Council website and support for the project.
