The shared-use path from Helston to Culdrose should be extended here to the St Keverne junction.

Work is needed on this crossing if the path to the left is to provide off-road access to Helston.

Start of cycle route to Helston through the National Trust's Penrose Estate

Shared-use path by Kerrier Way to the Heartlands visitor attraction

Link needed from the Portreath Branchline Trail to this side of the new Kerrier Way

End of the hard surface on the Portreath Branchline Trail

Link from the Portreath Branchline Trail to the new Kerrier Way and the Heartlands visitor attraction - it's a very roundabout route with two zigs and no direct steps to cut them off.

Mining Trail to Tuckingmill - not yet on any online mapping or satellite imagery.

Dropped kerb needed here for access to the Heartlands visitor attraction, Camborne

New access to the Heartlands visitor attraction, Camborne

Road converted to one-way for motor-vehicles with a two-way shared-use path.

Two whole bike stands at Lelant Saltings station. To be fair, it is a park and ride aimed at motorists who might otherwise drive into St Ives..

Two-way road recently (controversially) converted to one-way with cycle track

Signs at start of contraflow cycle route to the left

Narrow bridge. I grew up near here and we all cycled to our summer jobs - but I'd never seen a lycra-clad cyclist here until yesterday.

Double yellow lines on Penzance's main shopping street, ie parking for cars with disabled permits. Most traffic is uphill here with only buses, taxis and bikes going downhill.

Helston's bike shop has been transformed.

Riverside route in Truro

Semi-traffic-free route to central Truro

Cycle parking at Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens

This track to Gulval village is signed as a public footpath but isn't shown on online maps.

Sat-navs often show that you have to turn left here but it is possible to turn right here and follow the lane parallel to the A30.

Useful route for cyclists parallel to the A30

Shared-use access to West Cornwall Shopping Park

Amazing - the only access to the shared-use footway at the A30 roundabout is through McDonald's. I wonder who funded it?

The short and pretty pointless stretch of shared-use footway by the A30 roundabout leads only to McDonald's! Not even a link to take cyclists off the old A30 here. I wonder who paid for this?

Anyone would think this was a proper cycleway around the A30 roundabout.

Links from the A30 footbridge towards National Cycle Network route 3

Links left to the footbridge over the A30 and right towards NCN route 3.

Level route from the A30 roundabout, Hayle, towards NCN route 3

Steps to A30 footbridge and level route to the bridge and the A30 roundabout.

Footbridge across the A30 - this could be improved for cyclists.

Beware Cyclists sign on the A30 approaching the very un-cycle friendly Hayle roundabout - but there's a footbridge in the middle distance which could be adapted for cyclists.

Penzance's main street closed to traffic for Montol, the winter solstice festival - an exemption for bikes would have been nice.

Potentially useful cut-through to central Penzance - and less useful 'No Motor Vehicles Except for Access' to the left which doesn't actually go anywhere.

Sudden appearance of a cycle lane entering Newlyn on NCN route 3 - but the promenade to the left needs improving first.

Cut-through in Newlyn

The missing link in the Penzance promenade route - a ramp is needed to replace the steps at the right.

Cyclists towards Penzance join the former A30 here.

Poor link to the footway by the A30

Footway on the line of the old A30.

Cycleable footway by the A30

Dropped kerbs at this crossing on the footway by the A30 towards Penzance.

This footway by the A30 needs improvement for shared use.

NCN route 3 turns right here

This should actually be a through route for cyclists on a bridleway.
