Cornwall Council wanted to close this road to motor vehicles but were forced to repair it - but it's restricted and hardly any cars use it.

Bike rental for Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast trail

Lots of car parking on the quay at Falmouth and a couple of oddly sited cycle stands in the middle.

Clear line of desire for a route from the Helston Tesco to new housing and the new A394

Just a bit of white paint for cyclists here, although there was plenty of space to do something decent when the big new Tesco supermarket was built.

Less useful than it seems, with an awkward exit to the footway above the A394.

Cut-through (not on the online maps) from the A394

Bigger better signs for NCN route 3 near St Erth station (see #15097)

Cycle lane on the A30 St Erth roundabout - not very welcoming.

Cycle lane by the A30 (it's a better idea to take the old road via Hayle unless you like fast motor traffic)

Cycle lane by the B3301 to Hayle from the St Erth roundabout; and for cyclists crossing the B3301 to stay on the A30 (not a great idea).

Cycle lane on the A30 St Erth roundabout - not very welcoming.

Footpath ending on the A3074 at the A30 St Erth roundabout

Link to Penzance church (steps at the other end, alas)

Signed as a road, but in fact a pedestrian/cycle loop off Loe Bar Road, Porthleven

Shared-use ('Please consider other path users') and bus/cycle lane

Crossing at Truro College - but where's all the cycle parking?

Shared-use footway towards Truro College - although one could also use the service road to the left for a short distance

Cycle crossing between Truro College and the Royal Cornwall Hospital

Pointless barriers on this link to new housing

Paved bridleway from the A390

Shared-use route to Truro College crossing a side-road

Closed driveway by the A390 shared-use route

Not much room for the bus stop and the shared-use route opposite the Royal Cornwall Hospital

No right turn to the Royal Cornwall Hospital except local buses and cycles - but the marking on the road surface is buses only, and I don't know how many cyclists would want move across two lanes of motor traffic here.

Shared-use path by the A390

No Motor Vehicles on this link to the A390 and the Royal Cornwall Hospital, but it's not the most cycle-friendly either.

Footpath to the A390 - no problem, there's a proper cycleway behind the camera

Start of Bramble Lane, Truro - a wasted resource

New path parallel to Bramble Lane

New path parallel to Bramble Lane

Clearly marked as a footpath only, who knows why cycles aren't welcome?

End (ie start) of shared-use footway and footpath off the A390

Crossing and footpath off the A390

Bus lane into Truro and two-way shared-use footway

Two routes to Truro station and city centre - not sure I'd want to take the downhill one

Somehow cars do get squeezed in to the back streets of Mevagissey

Start of foot/cycle route from the centre of Mevagissey to the north

Sign to a couple of Sheffield stands by Mevagissey harbour

The bottom of the foot/cycle route down to Mevagissey harbour from the north.

The bottom of Ciff St, supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north. Probably best to dismount here and go either left or right.

Supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north - keep left here.

A clear end to the new shared-use path

Cyclists are encouraged to leave the carriageway here and use the new island to reach the new shared-use path to the right.

The shared-use path leaves the A390 here and runs along a parallel residential road.

A German mountain biker went over a cliff near here and died last year - you really shouldn't be cycling on the Cornish Coastal Footpath.
