Get On Your Bike – Exe Estuary Trail

May 6, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm


Explore the beautiful Exe estuary on level, traffic-free cycle paths that take you alongside the river, passing through pretty villages and RSPB reserves which offer great opportunities for birdwatching. The views throughout are spectacular.

We will take the strain & organise your travel to the trail in The Bike Bus which carries passengers and their bikes to cycling destinations. We will pick you up from Buckfastleigh, then you can relax in the comfort of our modern minibus whilst we transfer you to Exeter and the start of the trail. When you’ve reached Dawlish, The Bike Bus will be waiting to take you home to Buckfastleigh — it’s that easy!

Starting at the Quay in Exeter, the route to Dawlish is 13 miles and runs off road throughout. It goes past Turf Lock, Starcross, Powderham Castle and Dawlish Warren. There are optional side routes for the more energetic and great spots for birdwatching and picknicking.

There are several places to stop off for refreshments, or you can bring a picnic. We are very familiar with this route and can help with any questions on the run up to the day. Please email: for help with the route or cycle hire requirements. We have a range of suitable Hire Bikes for this route as well as some Electric Bikes which are available to hire at very good rates for group members.
