The peloton will travel through three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Going along the western borders of Exmoor National Park, before heading along the stunning coastal road from Combe Martin to Saunton. The race will go past the beautiful beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde and Saunton Sands. The race will finish in the centre of Barnstaple.
There will also be a surprise in store for the riders when they travel through the centre of South Molton’s famous indoor pannier market – the first time the modern Tour of Britain has ever been through a building!
