End of footpath (which should be widened for shared use) at the north end of Helston.

The newish A394 Helston bypass, with no cycling facilities

Informal pedestrian crossings only at this roundabout on the newish A394 Helston bypass

The newish A394 Helston bypass, with no cycling facilities

The Leats, a quiet lane behind Truro's main shopping streets

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.

A new roundabout for a big new Tesco supermarket, but nothing has been done for cycling apart from a bit of white paint.

Back lane in Helston, leading to footpath across the road.

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.

Cycle lane on the A30 at the St Erth roundabout

More confusing backstreet routes in Penzance

There is NO proper cycle parking anywhere near the main entry to the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Why does the NHS find this so diificult?

Typical car-dominated housing development, despite being five minutes by bike from the centre of Truro

Crossing and footpath off the A390

The lower route to Truro station turns right here, but you wouldn't know it.

Acres of car parking at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and no sign of any cycle parking. Why does the NHS find this so diificult?

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

Mevagissey harbour, where driving is allowed but cycling is not - though that surely wouldn't stand up in a court of law.

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.

Alternative route just above the main A3074 into St Ives - it would be nice if (one day) cyclists could use this in both directions.

Alternative to the A394 roundabout and a couple of hundred metres of the main road into Helston

Filling station at St Dennis looking towards the incinerator.

Boscawen Street, part of the NCN looking towards City Hall and the war memorial.

End of concrete bridleway from Degibna to Helston

Alternative route down to Helston avoiding the A394

Link to the coastal path, St Ives

Space has been found to rebuild the A39/A392/B3292 roundabout with two traffic lanes, and no cycle facilities - it was hostile enough before, but it's worse now.

Steep climb on this alley out of St Ives

Alley down into the heart of St Ives

Poor crossing of the A3074 between Carbis Bay and Lelant

Trafalgar Roundabout in the snow

Snow plough on Morlaix Avenue

Crossroads of St Austell Street, St Clement Street and Mitchell Hill looking towards Truro Cathedral in the snow.

Tregolls Road looking outbound in the snow

Entry to the Penzance Park & Ride (not yet open)

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

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.

Semi-traffic-free route to central Truro

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.

Useful route for cyclists parallel to the A30

Very un-cycle friendly roundabout on the A30

Penzance's main street closed to traffic for Montol, the winter solstice festival.

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

Cyclists towards Penzance join the former A30 here.

Footway crossing the A30

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

Peaceful rural scene on NCN route 3

Cyclists on NCN route 3 towards Penzance have to cross the road to reach the new shared-use path.

Quiet route from central Fowey

Largely traffic-free route into Fowey

Limited space for cyclists and pedestrians entering Mevagissey

Link from the Truro relief road to Lemon Quay and NCN route 3

If the speed ramp was aligned with the track this might provide decent access to the footbridge and Wadebridge

On-road cycle lanes past the former Wadebridge station on the Camel Trail - it would be easy to provide a decent riverside route here.

Cut-through to the main pedestrianised shopping street, Wadebridge

Quiet alternative route from the Camel Trail into Wadebridge (more or less on the old railway alignment, I think)

Are these meant to be cycle lanes on Wadebridge's bridge?

Cycle lanes on the road north to the Camel Trail

Road crossing and access to Priory Park, Bodmin

Paint markings for bus stop and 'fake' cycle lanes

Commuting cyclists prefer the paved footpath to the busy A30 roundabout - why not put in a decent cycle bypass?

Awful (ie nonexistent) crossing of the A30 Penzance relief road to this footpath.

Pleasant route beside the A30 Penzance relief road

Pleasant route beside the A30 Penzance relief road

Abbey Slip, Penzance - more or less traffic-free

Park and Ride bus stop deliberately constructed to block the road while buses stop - no way round for bikes.

New arrangements in Truro - bikes can reach NCN route 32 but cars are not allowed to drive through the city centre.

Port Isaac - terrible for driving, ideal for cycling.

I assume cyclists can use the road to Tintagel Castle - otherwise open to pedestrians and a Land Rover shuttle.

No room on the footway for bikes heading towards the Camel Trail

Back lane in Bodmin

Back lane in Bodmin

Busy section of road with no pedestrian or cycle facilities - not a good link to the Camel Trail.

Clear warning to drivers and cyclists on St Guron's Way, Bodmin

The King George V Memorial Walk (NCN route 3) on former railway by Copperhouse Pool, Hayle - road left (closed on Sundays), footway centre, access to houses to right.

The King George V Memorial Walk (NCN route 3) on former railway by Copperhouse Pool, Hayle

Plenty of room for a cycle bypass, if anyone at Cornwall Council ever thought about cycling.

Bike on the causeway to St Michael's Mount

National Cycle Network route 3 leaving Newlyn - a safe crossing would be useful here.

Crossing of the A30 to Tesco supermarket, Penzance

Screenshot from BBC website reporting two lejog cyclists killed on A30. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-23143314 And when they were named: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cornwall-23157100 Video: http://www.bbc ... [more]

The Cornish Hundred audax event

Lane parallel to the A30 - pretty busy at peak times.

Dead end for motor vehicles. but a useful back way to Hayle station for cyclists and pedestrians

Pleasant little lane lined with sea-view B&Bs

Almost traffic-free route down to the promenade

Our back lane in Penzance

The A30 Penzance relief road - shoehorned in with no facilities for pedestrians or cyclists.

New rising bollard at the top of Penzance's pedestrianised shopping street - with a two-minute delay, apparently. Some drivers just use it as a parking space.

Very rough shortcut from NCN route 3 to Hayle station
