Day 16 - Tiverton to Okehampton

An easy run down to Exeter on the B3181 through Willand, Cullompton and Broadclyst. We crossed Exeter and climbed the very steep Whitestone hill to Whitestone village, before dropping down to join the old A30 road at Tedburn St Mary. We stopped here to top up with drinks as it was now very hot.

We continued along the old A30, a delightful road to cycle on - rolling hills, good surface and not much traffic. We passed through Cheriton Bishop, Whiddon Down and Sticklepath and on into Okehampton. I expected Okehampton top be busy with tourists, but it was virtyally deserted. We stopped for a Devon cream tea before the final climb to the Travelodge at Sourton Cross.
