Imagine for a moment all that Cornwall has to offer. Majestic
cliffs and Atlantic breakers, rolling countryside and breath-taking
views, picturesque villages and historic towns, an ancient and
industrial past, distinctive flora and fauna, a host of different
visitor attractions and a wealth of arts and crafts.
Now imagine travelling, not by car, but by bicycle or on foot
and all these images form the back-drop to 'The Cornish Way'.
Enjoy just a few hours on a trail, or explore all 180 miles of
The Cornish Way, including the Camel Trail. Plan your day or be
spontaneous. Whatever you choose to do there is so much to be
enjoyed...distinctive landscapes, historic towns and villages,
sandy beaches, local festivals, art galleries and museums and a
host of other visitor attractions.
Opened in June 2000 as part of the
Sustrans - National Cycle Network, The Cornish Way is an
exciting project developed by the Countryside Service, in
partnership with Sustrans. Starting at the county boundary near
Bude, its six inter-linking trails for cyclists and walkers pass
through towns and villages as they make their way through
Cornwall's distinctive countryside to Land's End. Certain off-road
routes are also accessible to equestrians and the
With mainly minor and rural road and traffic-free, off-road
routes there are opportunities for new or novice cyclists as well
as some challenging routes for the more experienced. Even if you
don't have your own bike, you can hire one for the day.
