Devon needs no introduction to most of us and despite being in the south west of England, most of us have visited at some point in our lives. However, the Tarka Trail may be new to many of you. The Tarka Trail is actually a 163 mile walking and cycling route and runs in a figure of eight. Although a fantastic route for walkers and ramblers alike there's a 21 mile stretch dedicated to cyclists of all descriptions. Tarka Trail Cycle Hire is one of the leading cycle hire companies that will look after you if you can't be bothered taking bikes away with you on holiday. With a large range of bikes, including, hybrids, mountain bikes, tandems, and an adult trike, they have a bike that will suit everybody. They provide various child attachments including, seats, trailers and tag-along systems. Even the dog is catered for, with use of open or enclosed trailers. I liked the professionalism of this company and loaning a bicycle from a reputable company is very important. Tarka Trail Cycle hire offers huge value for money and the trail itself offers unforgettable visitor experience.
