Greendale Farm Shop is on the south side of the A3052 Sidmouth Road. The closest access roads are both from Farringdon to the north but an approach from White Cross avoids the uncomfortable right turn into the farm shop site. BETTER BY FAR to come into Woodbury Salterton and take the Greendale Road directly opposite the Diggers' Rest. 150 yards on the left is a well marked foot and cycle path which leads across fields (scenic in parts) to the café. Though it is civil of the Greendale people to provide a path it is as yet rather rough and mostly loose gravel. Riders without off-road experience may prefer to walk some of the way.

Coffee Pot - Bike Bus

IMG 3747a.jpg

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 advertised below and riders can join at a location that best 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.

Occasionally there is no leader for part of the ride. Try to have the schedule and a map with you. Where possible appoint a leader from those present.


If you are using some mobile devices you might find that the links to the route only show written instructions. To get a map you will then need to click on 'View desktop version'.

The Small Print

The Bike Bus is primarily organised for CTC Members and those new to leisure cycling who would like to try out cycling in company. For insurance and liability reasons regular riders are expected to be members of the CTC. Newcomers who wish to try out the Bike Bus can join up to three rides without taking out membership but are required to complete a Guest Rider Registration Form for each ride.
