    Camel Trail - Cornwall

    Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)

    This is a hugely popular route along the river Camel. Bicycles can be hired in Wadebridge and the route is very flat with most of it being tarmac cycle tracks.It is a tourist route so expect a lot of traffic on sunny days

    Queen Elizabeth Country Park

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    Here, cut through by the South Downs Way, is an excellent bike park, festooned with a variety of mountain bike trails to suit a variety of abilities. It can get a little over-faced in truly wet weather, but it's the best place or miles around for mtb-related thrills.

    Great Dun Fell

    Road Cycling Highlight

    The Daddy of UK mountains. 11/10 in Another 100 Greatest Climbs - "England's Ventoux". Careful on the lower slopes as it's easy to burn too much energy there. The last 2 miles of this climb to the highest paved surface in England is on beautiful closed roads. It's savagely steep in places and relentless. The view at the top will either be of nothing past your feet or of the whole world. A MUST for any road cyclist in the Cold Dark North
