The Cornwall peninsula by bicycle (also known as Cornwall), is a relaxed travel proposal through a magical land full of legends and myths.
Located on the southwest coast of England, it is the cradle of Celtic culture and is only 350 kilometers from central London.
Pedaling through the peninsula you can discover its beautiful beaches, impressive cliffs, forests, small fishing villages and the famous island of St. Michael.
Do you fancy a different bike getaway?
Today’s stage will be smoother than yesterday, but with some climb that will make us do some exercise in the first part. It will be worth the climb in Truro and Falmouth and Constantine and Gweek. We will visit the Wheal Jane mines and arrive at the historic city of Penryn.
Then we will descend towards Falmouth, a pleasant seaside town where we can visit its exotic gardens, the maritime museum and see beautiful beaches. We will have the opportunity to see the impressive Castle Fortress of Henry VIII that still dominates the landscape before continuing the journey towards Helford Creek.
The stage of this journey will take us to the southernmost point of Great Britain, the Lizard. We will visit the beaches of Church Cove and Kynance Cove with magnificent cliffs, caves and islands such as those in the Goonhilly Downs area.
Today’s stage is short, but full of history. We will pass through Porthleven, a pretty fishing village and a former landmark in shipbuilding. We will then cycle along the coast to Praa Sands, one of Cornwall’s most popular beach areas.
A few kilometers away is the famous island of St. Michael’s Mount, which can only be reached at low tide by a beautiful path.
In today’s circular stage we will learn more about the city of Newlyn, an important fishing port in England and the inspiration for the Newlyn school of art.
We will pedal towards the Merry Maidens, a stone circle from the Bronze Age that stands in the middle of a remarkable concentration of ancient Celtic menhirs.
Last stage of our trip. We will travel the north coast and its marshes, sand dunes and steep cliffs for several kilometers where we will enjoy the formidable views of the Atlantic.
We will enter a curious path between trees in the forest of “Tehidy Country Park” until we reach the spectacular cove of Portreath. We will reach Truro through a few kilometers of forest characteristic of the area.
