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

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

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.

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.

More confusing backstreet routes in Penzance

Crossing and footpath off the A390

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

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

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

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

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

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

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?

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.

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.

Bike on the causeway to St Michael's Mount

Crossing of the A30 to Tesco supermarket, Penzance

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

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.

Cyclist on the A30 between Hayle and Penzance

shortcut from Hayle station to NCN route 3 at the new harbour bridge

Very rough shortcut from NCN route 3 to Hayle station

Link from the Railway Siding path to Hayle station

NCN route 3 on new bridge over Hayle harbour

Central cycle lane leading to ASL - it's not entirely clear that the right turn is where the car is turning in the distance.

St. Ives in the summer is crammed full. Cyclists are not a very common sight here.
