The bike is suffering from lack of use this month. Why? Because I have been out with Sustrans helping to sign a new route on the National Cycle Network. Route 28 follows little lanes from Totnes to Salcombe and on to Yealmpton near Plymouth. It passes or goes close to several beaches but nicely avoids most of the main roads.
If you want to cycle to the beaches at Slapton, South Milton and Mothecombe this is a handy route to know. It will appear on National Cycle Network mapping shortly and there will be links to Totnes and Ivybridge train stations.
