You can normally find me cycling the little lanes of Dartmoor and around the beautiful South Hams in Devon when at home. This is a special place for cyclists known as Marchant's Cross.

To find it, you must cycle to Meavy. This is about 12 miles from Plymouth on NCN274. When you arrive at Meavy, an ancient oak tree will be seen with the Royal Oak Inn behind. It is essential to stop here to enjoy a glass of cider or scrumptious local beer on the green. Only when fortified must you carry on to find Marchant's Cross. It is about half mile from the pub and adventurous cyclists can cross the river by a rather tricky ford but for those who like to keep their feet dry, there is also a bridge
