I am going to North Devon,  Woolacombe - Mortehoe area next week.  Any
information on Off Road routes in the area.  I understand that the
Coast path is off limits for MTB`s.

Thanks for any info.

There is a flat cycle path called the Tarka trail, which heads out
of Barnstaple to the South West.  I think there is also a bit that goes
up towards Woolacombe.

There is a hotel in Woolacombe which advertises in Cycling Weekly as a
centre for MTBing so there should be some routes around there.  I don't
remember the name, but its on the outside, of the first right hand
corner when you enter the hill into Woolacombe.

The Devon & Cornwall book of the Ordnance Survey series of day rides
has some rides in the area.  The route on the cover goes past Lynton
Youth Hostel (where my girlfriend works).  I don't know if any of the
other routes in the book are near Woolacombe.  There are definitely
quite a few bridle paths in the area, especially when you get closer
to Exmoor.
