Cycling - South East Cornwall

South East Cornwall is becoming very popular for off-road cycling. There are a number of places to choose from with the nearest in terms of distance from Dolbeare Park are:

Drakes Trail including the Plym Trail
This is a 21 mile cycling and walking path that links Tavistock with Plymouth and includes the very lovely Plym Trail. The Plym Trail is a lovely cycle ride along the old Plym Valley railway and for the most part is a tarmac path climbing very gently through beautiful woodland and across viaducts. This is a delightful ride during the autumn months. A great place to stop for lunch is the pub at Meavy. Can do an additional extension to Saltram House (NT).
