Cycling Routes

Here are a few options for you to look at.  We would love to hear from any of our customers with recommendations of routes taken or the service we provide on our facebook page

Moor to Shore
This is one of our most popular single day cycling routes in Cornwall and includes a journey from Rough Tor 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. 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. During the summer months we do regular drops on the moors.  We would consider this an easy ride. Call or email for more details.

Route 3 and 32 on the National Cycle Network
Route 3 and 32 link at various points throughout Cornwall and with our specialist touring bikes is a brilliant way for an active cyclist to enjoy Cornwall at its best. Running through Cornwall from Bude to Lands End the routes can be picked up at various places along the North and South Coast. These routes include mostly B roads and take in some outstanding scenery as well as a section of off road cycling on the Camel Trail and other off road trails along the way. We are happy to deliver and collect our hire bikes at any point along these routes.  This map shows the routes through Cornwall.

The North Cornwall Cycle route

This is the part of route 3 from Bodmin to Bude which then links up with the national cycle route in Devon.  You can do a loop at Bude and Head back down or carry on into Devon and we can meet you there! Here is the map http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=13410

Cycle Youth Hostel to Youth Hostel

We have some brilliantly positioned Youth Hostels in Cornwall and we deliver bike hire to them all.  Our closest and favourite is Treyarnon with one of the best views possible.  With many of them within easy striking distance of the National Cycle Network they are worth investigating. http://www.yha.org.uk/places-to-stay/region/south-west/cornwall

Hayle to Truro

The Old Engine House trail takes you from the glorious beaches of the coast around Hayle through Camborne and onto the partly traffic free Mineral Tramways project, Carn Brea, Redruth and onto Truro.  http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=13408

The Clay Trails and The Eden Project

These are newly launched, mostly off road trails, taking in some breathtaking scenery and are good for family cycling.  Part of the trails take in the Eden project and take you from there out to the coast.  If you wanted a day of totally green travel we can meet you at Luxulyan Train station nearby where it is a short cycle to the Eden project to join the trails. http://www.claytrails.co.uk/routes

New Off Road Trail

Most regular visitors to North Cornwall are familiar with The Camel Trail which runs from Wenford Bridge all the way down to Padstow.  Something new and exciting though is the addition of a trail from St Minver (just up the hill from Rock) right the way through to Polzeath.  This has been made by the new owners of The Point, through who's land the trail runs.  It also crosses the recently updated golf course, past their cafe and restaurant (perfect for refreshments) and enjoys some wonderful views.

Cyclists Own Routes and their thoughts on them!

Our friends at Cycle route have put together an extensive list of routes throughout Cornwall and may be able to give you some creative ideas.

Bodmin Parkway Train Station to Padstow

This route links up with the Camel Trail in Bodmin and delivers you to Padstow.  Perfect for romantic or surprise weekends.  Here's a recommendation from the Guardian http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/2007/mar/03/cyclingholidays.cornwall


We do regular drops at Wadebridge Quay. From here you are able to travel up river with the tide or travel down river, again with the tide to Padstow or Rock, or explore the Creek at Little Petherick. See tide table here. Call or email for more details.
