Yesterday i went on one of my favourite local rides out through Exeter, Winkleigh and Flowery Gully.
I am ashamed to say that i still avoiding the big climb over Flowery Gully. However yesterday i did all but and it is still a challenging ride with plenty of rolling hills and dead roads. Aiming to take on the full loop in next week or two. Gravelly Beach-Batman Bridge-Beaconsfield-Flowery Gully/Winkleigh-Exeter-Home.(47km hilly). A quiet, but very challenging and scenic country ride.
The full loop is best done on the weekend when the log truck traffic is minimal.
