Tour of Britain 2014 – Exmouth to Exeter

I took a day’s leave yesterday to go and watch the Tour of Britain. Cycled down to Exmouth with Caroline and Jon to see the start and then came back up the excellent cycle track (NCN2) to Exeter to watch the finish. The cyclists left Exmouth and crossed Dartmoor via Parke, Haytor, Tavistock, Lydford Gorge and Okehampton before returning to Exeter. Here are a few pictures from the day along with my fuller photo set here.
