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'.

A Date for your Diary - Thursday 14th February

The Bike Bus will be paying a visit to the Exeter Energy from Waste facility for a guided tour.

The day should run like this:- Meet at 9 o’clock on Exeter Quay, Piazza Terracina side as usual. Ride a scenic loop, timing it to arrive at Grace Road at 10 o’clock. Coffee, tea and cake on arrival, followed by a half hour explanation of what the plant does, followed by a tour to see it doing it. That should take in total about an hour and a half. We should be back on the bikes before 12 o’clock and then the world, or at least anywhere within 15 miles of Exeter, is our lobster. I’ll put up a route. If you intend joining the tour could you let me know at rogerspurr@hotmail.co.uk quite soon so that we have approximate numbers. There is a limit of 24 places, so don’t leave it till the last minute. Finally, if the weather turns out to be horrible, the visit will still go ahead and you are at complete liberty to arrive at the facility at 10 o’clock by any form of transport.

Bike Bus Routes

Some bike bus routes can be found here.


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.
