Cycling in Exeter

Exeter is a cycle-friendly city. Cycling is an easy way to get around the city as everywhere is within a 30 minute bike ride. Cycling facilities in Exeter are excellent, so whether you are a local resident or a first time visitor to Exeter, the bicycle is the perfect way to get around and explore.

Exeter has numerous cycle routes (including bus and cycle lanes) as well as quiet roads identified as part of a cycle network. These have been constructed to help cyclists and provide a route away from busier and heavier traffic.

If you feel a bit more adventurous, why not jump on your bike and cycle along the Exe Estuary Trail,  a 26 mile, mainly flat cycle and walkway which runs around the entire Exe Estuary linking Exmouth, Exeter and Dawlish, with fantastic views along the River Exe.
