Plym valley cycle trail.

“This route, part of Devon Coast to Coast NCN Route 27, takes you along the scenic former railway path that leads from the city of Plymouth to the wild expanses of Dartmoor. The path has recently been extensively resurfaced for significant stretches, and as such offers a leisurely and pleasurable ride in either direction.” Visit Devon

We only did the first 4 miles or so from Plym bridge to Leighbeer tunnel (also known as Shaugh tunnel (photo).

After a fairly long, steep ramp (which we all managed easily) the path became, flat, even and metalled. It gently followed the route of the old railway, through trees and over viaducts. A pleasant ramble.
