Good loop through Somerset, Devon and Dorset - taking in a variety of coastal,rural, urban and main A roads.
Fairly quick roads that are mainly traffic free earlier in the spring - the coastal sections are probably busier during the summer / Bank holiday periods. Exeter centre can be busy at weekends.
All in all, good days ride.
This route was created on the recommendations someone who has lived in Dorset for 30 years based on what a great ride should be. It has lots for everyone. There are picturesque villages scattered through the first 40 miles with stunning views across the Dorset Downs as the road climbs up towards Bulbarrow Hill. There´s every bend imaginable from 1st gear hairpins to super fast sweeping curves. Scattered along the way are quite a few straights where you can really open her up. I´ve ridden this several times now and never seen anything of the boys in blue. At the end you can treat yourself at the cafe in Long Street where they make real Italian gelato on the premises that are to die for. No better way to spend half a day!
