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 Exeter

Ready for the excesses of Christmas? Going to miss a lot of cycling? Get set for the party season by coming on what is considered by local cyclists to be one of the best routes around.

We will start in Exwick and head out over Dunsford Hill. We will then take the road up over Longdown before tackling the many hills that lead to the Dartmoor town of Moretonhampstead. Winter is a great time to do this ride as the leafless trees mean you can really take in the breathtaking views as you climb higher up onto the moor. We will stop in a cafe in Moretonhampstead before taking the same route back and hitting the hills from the other side which gives a completely different aspect.

This is an advanced ride for experienced cyclists only as it involves many very steep hills. Riders must use a road bike. The ride is 28 miles in total.

Starting Point
Outside the Thatched House pub, Exwick, Exeter. EX4 2BQ

Meet the Champions

  • Nichola Rorke
    Nichola Rorke Hi, my name is Nik. I love cycling for pleasure, with my kids and for training for triathlon and time trials. Don't let that worry you though as I am really pleased to be a Breeze champion and help women get into cycling at EVERY level. I am looking forward to some ambles along the quay and canal in Exeter with a coffee stop on the way and also some more challenging rides for those who want to further their cycling. I plan to organise some Mum and child rides, I might even bring my two along.
