Cycling Map
-------------------------------

sustrans logo Sustrans are an organisation that are constantly publishing and improving their information, this map gives you an overview of the dedicated cycle routes that wend their way through Cornwall. Including a comprehensive map of the Camel Trail which now starts less than a mile from Helsbury. Revised and updated the 180 mile long Cornish Way on Route 3 of the National Cycle Network now incorporates Marazion, Mounts Bay, Mousehole, a virtually traffic-free ride around the broad sweep of Mounts Bay starting across the causeway from St. Michaels Mount, through Penzance, past the fishing boats of Newlyn and descending into the beautiful harbour at Mousehole. St. Austell and the Eden Project, new traffic-free routes through the former clay mines make for a wonderful journey to this now world famous visitor attraction. Bodmin, Padstow & Wadebridge, a journey along one of the most attractive traffic-free routes in the country, the Camel Trail follows a disused railway line from Bodmin through Wadebride and along the Camel Estuary to the popular town of Padstow. Everything the local, casual or touring cyclist needs to explore Cornwall by bike. You can buy the map from the Sustrans web site

South West Coastal Path
------------------------------------

South West Coastal PathThere are many guides to the South West Coastal Path, this one is highly rated on Amazon. The tradition of walking the South-West coast path in an anti-clockwise direction springs from there being more miles in total with the wind and weather behind you than against you. To assist forward planning of both day walks and continuous long-distance hikes, the coast path has been divided into sections, beginning and ending where there are amenities for refreshment or accommodation (or access inland to them). Each section of the book begins with a summary of its length, the kind of terrain and gradients to be expected, along with details of amenities and access points. An attempt has been made to grade the walking for difficulty, although such an exercise will always be subjective. Whether your coastal journey is a modest jaunt or a long-distance trek, you will surely gain new perspectives, a sharpening of the senses and a fuller appreciation of the interplay between nature and the hand of man. There is also a newly upgraded web site.

Cornwall Today Magazine
