Cycling

If you’re looking to get into the fresh Cornish air, dust off those cobwebs and enjoy some of the best cycle paths in the county you’re coming to the right place.

Here’s a few of our favourites to get you going…

Pentewan Valley Trail

Starting almost on our doorstep, the Pentewan trail is a scenic three mile (car-free) track suitable for riding or walking. You’ll follow the old railway track through woodland before following the river down to the sea and the sandy beach at Pentewan. The ideal end to romantic stroll, short bike ride or family fun day.

The Camel Trail

The Camel Trail is one of the best known and popular routes in Cornwall and it’s easy to understand why. With 18 miles of largely traffic-free, surfaced tracks it’s suitable for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and wheelchair users. If you’re a wine lover be sure to check out the Camel Valley Vineyard, which runs tours and tastings as well as selling their award winning wares.

The Devoran to Portreath Mineral Tramways route 

The Mineral Tramways route will take you through a little Cornish history; originally opened in 1815, it provided a wagonway route from mines near Scorrier in Cornwall to a port in Portreath. Nowadays the chances of being run down by a wagon are obviously remote, so this coast to coast trek is one for all the family, whether on your bikes or by foot.

Cardinham Woods

If you go down to the woods tonight you’re sure to be in for a surprise, and at Cardinham near Bodmin it’s sure to be a good one! A beautiful mixed woodland, it’s popular with dog walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike. Waymarked trails will take you deep into the woods to discover stunning viewpoints and an intriguing history before stopping off in the café for a little light refreshment.

Lanhydrock near Bodmin

Whatever your experience as a cyclist, there’s bound to be a trail to suit at the National Trust’s Lanhydrock estate. Enjoy the ride through woodland and choose from a range of flat or hillier routes.

Bike hire

Not able to bring your bikes along with you? Don’t worry, there are various options for hiring bikes and equipment – on site at Pentewan Valley or the Camel Trail (Padstow or Wadebridge ends), Cardinham, Lanhydrock or Bissoe Bike Hire (for Devoran to Portreath Trail) or from Pentewan Valley Cycle Hire 01726 844242 who will deliver to Bosinver
