- Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.

Breeze Bike Rides in Mid Devon
An enjoyable relaxing ride along the quieter,flat part of the Grand Western Canal tow path. This side of the canal is less used and in my opinion the prettier side, however I guess you will have to make your own judgement on this.
The plan is to cycle to the end of the canal and stop at the historical Lime Kilns for a hot drink and some biscuits. I will bring a couple of flasks with hot water and some tea bags and coffee etc...
After the break we will make our way back along the tow path back to the car park. There is a beautiful old church on route that we can stop to have a look in if anyone is interested.
I would recommend that you wear clothes that are approriate for the weather conditions in particular a warm pair of gloves. I can carry excess clothing in my cycle bags if you are desperate.
There are public toilets at the Sampford peverall car park
If you need to hire a bike you can do so from Abbotshood bike hire in Halberton or if you would prefer to ride an electric bike why not hire one from my local hire company Easy Bike days- www.easybikedays.com
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask even if you think they are stupid ones.
I look forward to meeting you all on Saturday 24th March.
