Day 3 Launceston to Barnstaple

Wednesday 10th April. Leave from Launceston in the morning, a late lunch at the Puffing Billy then on to Barnstaple. 71km, mostly downhill and flat (some climbs early on)

47km to the Puffing Billy which is a bit hill – 20km at 1-4% and 3.6 at 5-8% – but then pretty much flat for the last 24km.

Breakfast at No8 Cafe in Launceston at 9am before departing then a long haul to me Ricky at the Puffing Billy.

Should make it by 1pm then a much more relaxed afternoon to get to Barnstaple.

Meet other riders somewhere along the cycle path from Bideford to Barnstaple and then some sort of cavalcade into town and an evening in the pub. What’s not to like 🙂

  1. Hi can you tell me when you will be arriving in Barnstaple as I would very much like to photograph the arrival of the cyclists? The info on the page is not very helpful. I look forward to hearing from you

    1. Hi Natasha,
      The simple answer is we don’t know yet – detailed timings probably wont be known until the week before a best. It’ll be late afternoon for sure. It also depends on XR-Barnstaple and what they are arranging – you can contact them through Facebook.
