Cycle routes and trails

Cycle routes and trails From the genteel to the challenging

Cornwall offers the cyclist a great variety of cycling from quiet country lanes which meander through picturesque villages and ancient harbours, to more challenging off-road routes which explore the depths of the Cornish countryside.

From the genteel Camel Trail and Coast to Coast Trail, which are ideal for those with young children, to the challenging North Cornwall coastal road which provides some of the steepest gradients in the county.

The Camel Trail is a top cycle route for its beauty and accessibility to cyclists of all ages. Cornwall's Mineral Tramways Mining Trails offer 30 miles (60km) of adventure and discovery for walkers, cyclists and horse riders following routes of contrasting scenery (woodland and moorland) with spectacular views across the county.

The Cornish Way offers over 200 miles of inter-linking trails connecting Bude to Land's End for walking and cylcing. You can obtain more information on routes and maps from  Cornwall Council.
