What other riders think of this route

Sky Ride Local in Plymouth

If you’re fairly confident on your bike on dirt and gravel surfaces and ready to broaden your cycling horizons, our Off-Road Steady rides are ideal. At a comfortable pace, and possibly with some modest hills along the way, there is barely a metre of tarmac in sight on these rides so come and enjoy the scrunch of gravel and the squelch of mud under your tyres with us! Rides are between 6 and 15 miles long, at a moderate pace of between 7 and 10 miles an hour.

Explore the traffic free off road loop that takes in the delights of the National Trust Saltram Park estate and views across the stunning River Plym. The tea room makes for a great stopping point and for more information on activities and visiting the grounds see https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/saltram/.
