Enjoy the feel of tarmac under your wheels? With panoramic views and steep valleys to climb, Exmoor has some of the best variety of road riding in the country. There are routes available for all abilities. If you want to enjoy the network of quiet country lanes, or climb the 1705 ft to the highest point at Dunkery, there is something for everyone.
