The start of a new adventure...
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.
Welcome to our home...
What's going on at Dorothy's....
WHY VISIT NORTH DEVON?
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.

Who is Dorothy?
'Dorothy' is a Honda CT110 - a retired Australian postal bike - that I rode home from Australia to England. After that she also took me across America and up to Alaska. To this day she still leads the postie bike adventure days, and even though not fast, has more than earned the right to have the Speed Shop named in her honour. For me, Dorothy was much more than a bike, she was the spirit of adventure, and the Speed Shop was named (ironically) in her honour. Until her next adventure...
