I was super pleased to be featured on Coast Magazine's website as part of a collection of their 'Coastal Characters'. It is such a stunning magazine and website and I used to ogle the uplifting pages while living in London such is the pull of the seaside and it's way of life. Now that I am here - just two minutes walk from the beach - I couldn't be more proud to feature in this magazine.
Of course being by the seaside doesn't mean you are immune to the daily chores of life, but what is wonderful when you are by the sea and you look out across the horizon, is the realisation how small us we are.
Being on the Gateway to the Jurassic Coast, we are fortunate in Exmouth to have stunning scenery surrounded by cycle paths. There are a number to choose from including along the two mile beach and around the quay; the Route 2 that leads along the Exe Estuary all the way to Exeter that meanders through Devon Villages (Lympstone, Exton, Topsham). If you have more energy you can go back down the other side to Starcross which is really flat and takes you past the delightful Turf Lock and magical Powderham Castle. Save a little energy to carry the bikes over the railway bridge to catch the boat back to Exmouth. The Route also goes over to Budleigh Salterton, a quaint seaside town also with stunning scenery, completely different to Exmouth.
These lovely routes are just one of the reasons we chose Exmouth - Oh and how quickly you can hot foot it back up to London (or vice versa!). Happy cycling!
