Cornwall Cycle Routes – a Video listing.

There are so many Cornwall cycle routes in Cornwall with over 200 miles of trails to enjoy. Many of these form part of the nation Cycle trail managed by Sustrans.

The cycle trails available range from the very flat and easy along the river Camel (The Camel Trail) to really very adventurous adrenaline rides on Mountain bikes around the woods in Cardingham. You can cycle across wild and desolate moors, through woods and river valleys, along old railway and mineral tramways.

Take the family and hire from the various bike and cycle hire shops that operate near the trails. On suitable trails the bike hire shops will usually have trailers or bike seats that can accommodate young children. On many trails there are places to stop to get refreshments and the Cycle hire shops will have maps and give advice on places to stop and recover from your exertions.

If you have not been on a bike for many years then my advice is to pick a nice level trail that is not too long. Bike seats get harder and more uncomfortable the older you are in my view! If you have not been on a bike for some time do not start with a 30 mile trail with lots of inclines and descents. After all you can always go back for more.

We have an image gallery from a cycle trip along the Great Flat Lode Trail.
