Hi all.

Does anyone know of any good routes around the torquay area?

I am not looking for anything difficult, just some decent bridleways etc, i've got a OS map here but with my dodgy eyesight it's not so easy to find any routes.

Cheers

    Hi
    Try this one just out of Brixham down to the banks of the Dart. Its a mixture of cross country, some tecnical and some very fast downhill - but beware of walkers and horses and theres one or two very very long steep descents which you need to be wary of. A lot of its National Trust land and your not supposed to cycle on it but I've been doing it for years without any hassle.
    The route is about 15m and takes me (from home in Brixham) 1.5 hours.
