The Best Cycling Trails in Cornwall
Cycling in Cornwall provides something for everyone, no matter what cycle you ride or how fit you are. There are numerous opportunities to get away from the rush and bustle and ride through some of the most beautiful landscapes in the UK. Cornwall’s rolling hills, high moors, and undulating coastal roads can be tough but rewardingly scenic.
Coast to Coast (11 miles)
A brilliant free to ride bike trail, from Devoran to Portreath which is largely traffic free. Know as the Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast trail, which guides you through some of Cornwall’s most historic mine buildings. You will find a number of restored mines, while cycling through the beautiful Bissoe Valley Nature Reserve, the reserve was a former mine, and has heathland, woodland, ponds and an abundance of wildlife.
Camel Trail (18 Miles)
A gorgeous riverside bike trail that follows a disused railway line and the peaceful River Camel from Padstow to Poley’s Bridge. The path itself is flat and makes an easy cycle for any ages or ability, with a small part of the trail sharing the road with normal traffic in Wadebridge. We always love cycling from Wadebridge to Padstow, grabbing a ice cream or a delicious lunch, a great place to rent bikes from is Camel Trail Cycle Hire.Website
