CTC Exeter Coffee Pots Schedule
If you have time to spare midweek, there are "Coffee Pot" runs every Thursday which meet up at a designated cafe/house at 10:30 am. You can choose your own route to and from the coffee stop - or you can link up with other cyclists to ride there together. A number of participants join a 'Bike Bus' to cycle in company to the coffee stop (see below).

If you are unsure of the location of these stops please look in the Cafe List for directions.
Some cafes are not large enough to cope with a sudden influx of cyclists - so on a few Thursdays the Bike Bus will go to an alternative destination. On such days cyclists are free to choose which destination suits them best.
Newcomers - either to cycling or to the area - may find it helpful to join a group cycling to the Thursday morning coffee stops. Most weeks a 'Bike Bus' runs from a range of start points to the coffee stop. The schedule for the bus is published weekly and riders can join in at a location that suits them. The Bus runs at an easy pace and no one is ever left behind - so these rides are a useful introduction to touring cycling. If you have any questions just send a note to the Bike Bus.
