Classic Cornwall Cycling

Cycle the ancient Celtic Kingdom of Cornwall, defined by its sparkling blue seas, rugged coastline, wooded valleys and industrial heritage. Ride from ancient Iron Age Villages to the cosmopolitan harbour town of Padstow which boasts the Rick Stein’s mouth wateringly good fish and chips. 

From Bodmin pedal the Cornish Way through the tranquil Luxulyan Valley woods and make a side trip to the world’s largest bio domes of The Eden Project. Visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan and ride to the traditional fishing village of Mevagissey. Head to Cornwall’s surfing capital Newquay and enjoy a classic Cornish cream tea on the banks of the Camel River. No matter where you end your day, a characterful smugglers pub is always nearby for a locally brewed pint.
