Bike Hire in Cornwall Delivered to your Door!
One way cycle routes can include any of the following but are basically anywhere you want to go, but don't want to cycle back. We can arrange transport to you to the start or the from the end of your journey. Here are some suggestions.
You can see some of the wonderful cycling we do on our YouTube Channel.
Moor to Shore including the Camel Trail
This is one of our most popular single day cycling routes in Cornwall and includes a journey from Crowdy reservoir across Bodmin Moor on Route 3 and down through the picturesque village of Blisland. Joining up with the traffic free Camel Trail you then enjoy a leisurely cycle along the old railroad route through the market town of Wadebridge and on to the fishing village of Padstow, home of Prideaux Place made famous by Rosamunde Pilcher. Along the way are a number of pubs, The Camel Valley Vineyard, Tea Rooms and some of the most stunning scenery Cornwall has to offer. Prices start from £25 per person including transport from Padstow. We would consider this an easy ride.
Watergate Bay to Padstow
This ride takes you from Watergate Bay straight up the hill along the coast toward Mawgan Porth where another challenging hill awaits, but the views make it all worth while. Hugging the coast this route takes you through coastal villages and past long sandy bays including Porthcothan, Treyarnon, Constantine ( with a small detour) Harlyn and if you can manage another small detour, Trevone. Great places to stop along the way are Berryfields in Porthcothan, Treyarnon Bay YHA has a fantastic view of the beach and Trevone Beach Cafe is open all year round. Just a little further along and you arrive in Padstow. Home of culinary delights and a beautiful fishing village. You can end your journey here, Go ByCycle will pick the bikes up for you or you can follow a more inland route home heading straight out of Padstow on the A389 turning right just before the turning to St Issey. Continue on this road through St Ervan and St Eval or St Mawgan (more hils this way), however you will have to face Mawgan Porth hill before sweeping down into Watergate Bay.
Total Miles: 22
Terrain: Some challenging hills but otherwise moderate cycling. Need to be fit and capable on lanes with traffic.
Recommended Bike: Light Weight Day Bike £17/day or Road Bike £30/day from Go ByCycle
Coast to Coast Options
Padstow to The Eden Project. Starting in Padstow you make your way following the Camel Trail up to Bodmin where you connect with the Lostwithiel Road, detouring slightly for a safer crossing over the A30 and coming close to Lanhydrock house (which is lovely to visit and has a number of cycle trails around it). From here you follow lanes past Luxulyan (which has a train station which we also deliver bikes to if you would like to take a much shorter more relaxing route) and on, using part of the Clay trails, into Eden. The Clay trails are worth exploring if you have any energy left! We would consider this a moderate route for those used to cycling on the road and able to navigate (there are small signs along the route).
