Three men to conquer Devon’s borders by kayak, bike and foot

A trio of men have decided to attempt the Devon 360 challenge, braving the potentially harsh conditions of the Devonshire coast, through the means of kayak, bike and foot in order to raise money for a range of charities.



The charities they are hoping to raise money for include The Children’s Hospice South West, RNLI, Missing People and The National Trust, as well to raise awareness of the beauty of Devon.

Aiming to travel the 365-miles of coastal Devon in just six days, the men will travel by kayak, bike and by foot. With each method of travel throwing a different variety of obstacles in their direction, particularly dependent on the weather, this task is certainly not for the weak.

The journeys planned start date is the 3rd July this year, starting in Salcombe. The men joining Ross Lovell will be his adventuring friends Gary Jolliffe and Richard Snow.

Ross Lovell himself has had a rather impressive history in partaking in athletic challenges, having run around 20 marathons, as well as running 2,000 miles from London to Corsica, passing through a total of 9 counties and finally, finishing the World’s Toughest Ironman Triathlon twice! In comparison, this new adventure is seemingly simple but with a very important message.

“It’s fair to say that Devon holds a very special place in my heart. The Devon 360 highlight that this beautiful, rugged, wild landscape is perilously poised to be forever ruined by litter. It’s a plight we should all be tackling together and this challenge is a great opportunity to open our eyes to the severity of a situation which is seemingly easily overlooked,” commented Ross Lovell.
