Three favourite bike rides

Cornwall has some lovely cycle routes, offering everything from flat routes suitable for all ages to more challenging terrain. Here are three of our favourites:

Marazion to Mousehole

This 6-mile route is almost completely flat, and most of it is an off road trail. It includes cycling on the beach with picturesque views of St Michael’s Mount. Cyclists will pass through the town of Penzance and the fishing village of Newlyn which are both great pit stops for a spot of lunch.



Wadebridge to Padstow

Part of the 11-mile Camel Trail – this is a flat 5 mile cycle route (one way) which runs along the path of an old railway line that has been transformed in to one of the most popular cycle trails in the UK. Along the way you pass through woodlands and cycle alongside the River Camel then up the estuary to Padstow. Ideal for family rides and that fun day out !


Portreath to Devoran

One of the shortest Coast to Coast routes in the UK - 14 miles (one way) along a mainly traffic free cycle trail with a mixed surface. It takes you from Portreath on the North Cornwall coast to Devoran near Falmouth on the South, following the route of The Portreath Tramroad and the Redruth and Chasewater railway line. Hillier than the other two because you’re riding right across Cornwall!
