With its coastline beauty and off road trails Cornwall offers truly stunning countryside to explore on two wheels. Whether your choice of bike is road or trail, Cornwall will deliver fantastic routes both on and off road. With an array of cycle trails, many of which link together, families and more experienced cyclists alike can enjoy safe off-road riding.
The rich mining area of Cornwall’s central mining district now benefits from a 60km network of multi activity trails. New trails have been created to link in with existing routes such as the Coast to Coast and the Great Flat Lode Trails and, being mainly traffic free, offer improved and safer access to schools, places of work, local facilities, historic settlements and visitor attractions. The network of trails also offers people a unique opportunity to access a wide area that is rich in mining heritage.
Much of the trail network closely follows the tramway and railway routes once used to transport ore and vital supplies to and from the area’s many tin and copper mines to ports such as Devoran and Portreath. Cycling along mainly flat off road tracks with gentle inclines and declines, take the opportunity to cycle Coast-to-Coast in a day. Take in the Mineral Tramways and the Cornish tin and copper mining heritage. Or enjoy the beauty of the Carnon Valley viaduct and nature reserve.
