So whether you are an experienced cyclist or a family pottering about for the afternoon, Cornwall’s cycle trails and routes offer a fantastic way to enjoy the Cornish coast and countryside.

 

The Camel Trail A cycle path following the line of a disused railway, runs along the beautiful Camel Estuary from Padstow to Bodmin Moor

 

The Clay Trails You’ll discover the stunning colours of mica dams, peaceful lakes, clay tip peaks reaching to the sky and how the china clay industry has shaped the landscape seen today.

 

The Coast and Clay Trail The route provides a contrast of landscapes: rolling farmland; wooded creeks; sheltered coves; colourful fishing villages; historic towns; and views of the unique lunar landscape of the china clay industry.

 

Mineral Tramways Coast to Coast. Some of the world's greatest and best conserved groups of historic mine buildings with unusual wildlife, some of which only thrives in mining landscape habitats.

 

The Cornishway., 180 miles, some off road, stretching from Lands End to Bude on the County Border. Though mostly on road, much of the Cornishway follows country lanes, through some of the most attractive scenery Cornwall has to offer.

 

Cardinham Woods Cardinham is a beautiful mixed woodland, popular with local dog walkers, cyclists, and horse riders. It is maintained by the Forestry Commission.

 

Pentewen Valley Trail winds its way through wetland and woodland alongside the white river. It offers several miles of flat traffic-free cycling for the whole family.
