Motorcycle Tours and Experiences of North Devon and beyond...

The start of a new adventure...

 
58.JPG

                                     is a new venture  on the coast of North Devon.

Born out of ten years of motorcycle travel and adventure, the Speed Shop is home not  only to UK Postie Bike Adventures, 'Best of 4' Adventure days and the infamous Garbage Run, but also serves as base for anyone looking for advice, inspiration or even just a cup of tea as they explore the incredible riding roads and beaches that the area has to offer.

So please feel free to have a look around the site, check in and say hi and  both Dorothy and I look forward to seeing you down here sometime...

Nathan & Dorothy.

Ride the new 650s!

For 2021 Dorothy has added four Royal Enfield Interceptors and two Continental GTs to the fleet, with guided day and overnight tours up on the calendar, as well as the fleet available to book for one on one or group rides. 

North Devon is perfect for the 650 twins; easy to ride with some great scenery and day rides of around 120 miles.

WHY VISIT NORTH DEVON?

thumbnail_Picture 2.png

Many skip through Devon on their way down to Cornwall, oblivious to its more relaxing charms. But head North off the A30, aim for Exmoor and enjoy one of the most untouched and scenic parts of Great Britain. Better still, turn off the M5 at Bridgwater and follow the stunning A39 all the way through Minehead, Porlock and Lynton before hitting the famous beaches of Wollocombe, Croyde and Saunton, just a stone's throw from Dorothy's Speed Shop.

 

If you're heading in from the east then stop off at the magnificent Valley of the Rocks, Porlock Weir for its excellent food or the Hunters Inn for some real backroad discovery routes. 

Having ridden around the world, there's no place like North Devon, happy to call it home.

Why Dorothy?

The Speed Shop is named after the Honda CT110 (an ex Australian postal bike) that I rode home from Australia in 2009. In 2013 I then rode her across America, starting in New York and finishing in Alaska. It was a mammoth adventure for man and machine, and with the bike still in use and leading the postie bike tours of North Devon it seemed fitting to name the new venture after her. 'Speed Shop' is slightly ironic given her 45mph top speed.
