Cycling in Cornwall- the Cornishway
Nice Cycle Rides in Cornwall. The 180 miles of the Cornish Way, much of it on-road, stretches from Lands End to Bude on the County Border. Taking in both the Camel and Pentewan Trails
The Cornishway -National Cycle Network Route 3
Land End to Newlyn Though mostly on road, much of the Cornishway Cycling Trail follows country lanes, through some of the most attractive scenery West Cornwall has to offer. Through fishing villages such as Mousehole, and along a recently constructed 3 mile long level off road section to the bustling port of Newlyn. The hill out of the beautiful Lamorna Valley is narrow, twisting and steep, likewise though the hill into Mousehole from the West is a drag but it does give tantalising glimpses of the Harbour.
The Cornishway- Truro to Bodmin
The Cornishway- Truro to Newquay to Padstow hence to Bodmin From Truro there is a choice of route to Bodmin: either along the South Coast through Mevagissey; or ride through rural North Cornwall using minor roads to picturesque Padstow and along the Camel Trail to Boscarne Junction on the outskirts of Bodmin.
The Cornishway- Bodmin to the County Border
From Bodmin the Cornishway continues Northwards along the Camel Trail, through woodland on to the edge of Bodmin Moor. Where it leaves the Camel Trail to use minor roads past sleepy villages, skirting around Rough Tor, through rural North Cornwall. Hallworthy is famous for its cattle market. And out to the spectacular Atlantic Coast before reaching Bude. It must be stressed that though beautiful some stretches are very steep i.e. Crackington Haven, and you may find alternative inland routes easier on the legs. Even the fittest Cornish cyclist may find they have to push their bikes.
