Cornwall's Best Cycle Trails
We all know and love the Camel Trail, but did you know Cornwall is covered in a network of other amazing cycle trails? There is even one that runs right behind our shop! It's a fantastic way to see the county, get out and explore new places and travel carbon free. Not a fan of bikes? All these trails are also great for walking. Here's our guide to Cornwall's best cycle trails...
This is our favourite of course, because it goes right behind our shop. It starts just down the road in Portreath and runs across 12 miles of countryside from peaceful woods to fascinating buildings from Cornwall's mining heritage. The trail ends in Devoran which is a beautiful creekside village with cafes and pubs to fuel you back up after your ride.
This is for all your epic adventurers! A 123 miles long route from Bude to Land's End. From nature reserves to country lanes, sea views and tin mines, this route has it all. It might be a bit much in one go for a Sunday afternoon out, but why not break it down into smaller sections and do one bit at a time and challenge yourself to complete it over the winter.
This one is definitely more of a Sunday afternoon adventure! 8 lovely flat miles through the woods and along the riverside. You pop out at the pretty harbour of Pentewan where you can enjoy lunch at one of the pubs or cafes.
An exciting off road mountain bike trail exploring 7 miles of wooded hills in the Cardinham Valley. You will discover technical climbs and descents, snaking single track trails and features such as tight bermed corners, small step downs, rollers and table tops. A cafe near the car park will quench your thirst after all that adventure.
Hidden away in the beautiful Tamar valley are 15 miles of biking trails, with everything from level wide tracks for families to off road trails for mountain bikers. All the trails are free to use and open year-round.
