TO celebrate the Tour of Britain’s route through Crediton to Exeter, a bike ride, starting from the Town Square at 10.30am on Sat September 6, will give cyclists a chance to ride part of the route.

Experienced riders may opt for the A377, at their own risk, while others will prefer the lanes, along which they are insured through both Sustainable Crediton and CTC the national cycling charity.

Arranged jointly by Sustainable Crediton’s Boniface Trail Group and Exeter CTC, cyclists from both Crediton and Exeter will meet over coffee at Quicke’s Farm Coffee Shop.

The Quicke family welcome a cycle route across their land, so cyclists are keen to celebrate their decision and their business.

The ride will end at Crediton Farmers’ Market giving cyclists, a chance to explore and shop at the market before, perhaps, trying the Strava challenge up Jockey Hill, organised by the Bike Shed.
