Exeter to Dover

Postby JoeMoran23 » 7 Sep 2018, 5:42pm

Does anyone have any tips or routes for riding from Topsham (Exeter) to Dover?

This is what I've planned - https://cycle.travel/map/journey/78634? ... 076&zoom=8

Winchelsea to Rye, 245: Drag your route to the coast. 270: Drag your route north to follow NCN2 and see the giraffes.

Well worth it.

When people ask what you expect to see from NCN2 the reply should be "Herds of wildebeest sweeping majestically..."

On a good day you might even see some zebra.

Sorry, this is not helpful - at all - with regard to your original question, but the word 'Topsham' has me responding... Our daughter has recently relocated there (400 miles from 'home') and a couple of weekends ago we visited her. We rented bikes from Route2 Bikes, and spent a lovely Sunday tootling around the Exe Estuary Trail, including a couple of ferry crossings! It was just lovely. I was very impressed with the engineering infrastructure which has been put in place to make the route possible, by completing the circuit. Refreshingly, well... refreshing. Topsham's lovely! Hope you get your route sorted.
