There’s no end to the beauty of cycling in Cornwall. With its phenomenal coastline, wild moorland and exquisite fishing villages, this peninsula county makes for fantastic riding. On your two-wheeled adventures, you can discover deserted coves and inlets where seals snooze; jagged clifftops towering above crashing waves, tiny old churches nestled into ancient landscapes, Neolithic ruins lying in farmers’ fields and villages so sweet they belong in a picture book. 


From flat, riverside bike trails ideal for family outings to multi-day adventures fueled by cake stops and Cornish pasties, there are majestic cycle routes throughout Cornwall to satisfy every taste. The terrain is undulating with some steep hills to challenge the thighs but valleys offer gentler options. You can visit the vibrant settlements of Truro, Penzance, Falmouth, Padstow and St. Ives or ride from village to village, discovering old smugglers’ haunts and watching seabirds flock to fishing boats. 


Cornwall truly is a cyclist’s dream.
