The Granite Way Cycle Trail

The trail boasts a wide variety of sights and interests including a castle at each end, idyllic pubs, cream teas, a steam train ride (bikes carried free) and a visitor centre at Meldon as well as a host of flora and fauna including the bluebell wood and birds of prey which can often be seen hovering over head along the trail.

Bike Delivery

Devon Cycle Hire Ltd. is the only hire centre based directly on Dartmoor’s stunning Granite Way cycle trail, which makes it ideal for hiring bikes for a day out on the trail. But if you are not looking to cycle further afield or try out another trail, why not have a top specification mountain or hybrid bike delivered to your door.

As an alternative we can advise on other suitable trails on Dartmoor and in Devon as a whole, and deliver bikes to an easy drop off point for cycling these routes, and on top of this, collect them when you have finished for the day.
