Some might argue that there's no better way to explore Cornwall than by bicycle.
With a multitude of recreational trails managed by Cornwall Council, this could be the most efficient way to see as much of the landscape as possible, and when you factor in the added health benefit it's probably a no-brainer!
Try The Cornish Way, over 200 miles of trails from Bude to Lands End (including the famous Camel Trail), or Goss Moor, a 480-hectare National Nature Reserve. Use the links above to plan your routes and stops, maybe factoring in a visitor attraction, pub lunch or picnic along the way.
There's also the Coast to Coast Trail, which links the historic mining port of Portreath on the north coast and the port of Devoran on the south coast, allowing cyclists to ride across Cornwall in one day. Park the car at Bissoe Bike Hire, rent a cycle and off you go.
There are plenty of other places that hire bikes, Aldridge Cycles in Camborne and Elm Farm Cycle Hire in Portreath to name but two. And if you've brought your own, there's plenty of safe, dry storage available at Poltair.
