The concrete bridleway ends just short of the South West Coast Path

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.

Not a real dead end, and the one-way section could easily be two-way for cycling.

Emd of Route signs on roads entering the Royal Cornwall Hospital

The End of Route sign applies only to the ramp to the trading estate - and why, anyway?

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.

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

End of shared-use section of footway entering the Royal Cornwall Hospital

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

New sign at the start of NCN route 3 (The Cornish Way) - 'The National Cycle Network starts and finishes here!'

One-way, no motor vehicles except for access - it would be nice if contraflow cycling could be permitted here.

At last the roadworks (with Cyclists Dismount and go somewhere unspecified signs) on the A30 have finished and there's a new rail/bus interchange - cyclists are told to dismount to cross to the station, and there's no indication at all that ... [more]

Skidden Hill (ie skidding...) - now one-way, but it would be nice if cyclists could go down this way to central St Ives.

Very small No Cycling sign on the National Trust's Trevose Head property - but you'd be unlikely to get this far with a bike anyway.

No Cycling on the footpath across St Enodoc Golf Club

I've no idea why there's a cycle symbol on the end door - bikes would never be loaded that way.

Cyclists seem to be at the bottom of the hierarchy on the National Trust's Penrose Estate

The old road is actually still viable for cyclists as an alternative to slogging up the hill on the A394

'use bike racks provided'... I couldn't see any.

The Pedestrian Zone sign seems bizarre, but the road to the right would be traffic-free if the rising bollards were working.

If only Great Western Railway would concentrate on running trains on time rather than putting up silly No Bicycles signs etc.

Ferry fares have gone up! But it still doesn't cost too much to take a bike.

St Ives - closed to motor vehicles for most of the day

New gate and No Cycling sign on the Cornish coastal path

No Cycling on Bodmin Moor from the Rough Tor car park.

End of Route sign - actually it runs through the layby to the edge of Lelant village

Pedestrian sign to the Penzance Park & Ride (not yet open)

Unenforceable nonsense in Mevagissey - cars are allowed to reach the parking, but cycling isn't allowed?

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.

Bikes, buses and taxis only eastbound in central Penzance

Old-fashioned No Cycling sign, Penzance

No Cycling in Penlee Park, Penzance

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.

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

You can drive but not cycle? Absurd.

Despite the Sustrans milepost and the No Motorised vehicles sign, this is NOT NCN route 3

Cyclists Dismount sign on NCN route 3 in Truro

No provision for cycles on this link to Truro bus station and NCN route 3

Cyclists Dismount sign on NCN route 3

A new one-way system with a cycleway under the St Ives railway branch (replacing a two-way road) has caused some controversy.

Mixed messages - end of a short stretch of shared-use footway provided by housing developers

Arriving by ferry at the low-tide steps you can't ride your bike in to Padstow

This riverside track could be a useful link

Cyclists Dismount sign on the footbridge, Wadebridge - the only alternative to the road bridge. What shame they didn't build it wide enough!

Cyclists Give Way to Pedestrians - if you can find this route, beyond Wadebridge's No Cycling car park, it's a good link to NCN route 32 (the Camel Trail)

No Cycling sign in a car park on what should be the obvious link to a riverside extension of NCN route 32 (the Camel Trail)

Cyclists Give Way to Pedestrians - if you can find this route, beyond Wadebridge's No Cycling car park, it's a good link to NCN route 32 (the Camel Trail)

No Cycling on a car park access road? Ridiculously negative attitude in Wadebridge, where this would be the obvious link to a riverside extension of the Camel Trail.

Pedestrianisation (no cycling) on Wadebridge's main street

Why does British traffic engineering require so many negative 'End of Cycle Route' signs? This is wrong anyway, just before a toucan crossing and a cycle link to the right.

I presume the shared-use sign refers to the link from the crossing to the footbridge?

Motorbikes, not cycles, but still a good thought.

No cycling in Morrab Gardens, Penzance (though they're far more concerned about drinking)

Both these dead ends are in fact handy through routes for cycling - route signs needed.

No cycles allowed in Morrab Gardens, Penzance

No Cycling on this footpath out of Fowey.

No Cycling on this footpath to Fowey - the A3082 is available just to the north.

The ferry from Polruan to Fowey - £1 for bikes.

More or less traffic-free access to the waterfront at Fowey.

Cyclists on the road for half a mile from the Lost Gardens of Heligan to NCN route 3.

Electric bikes are catching on in Padstow too.

There's no reason why cyclists shouldn't use the upper path from the Padstow war memorial - the lower path is far too busy with pedestrians though.

When the road from St Anthony to Carne was closed by a landslip, Cornwall Council said they had no money for repairs and proposed to downgrade it to a bridleway - widespread protests have finally led to their repairing the road, and it is n ... [more]

Information For Cyclists by the bike stands at the Lost Gardens of Heligan

Memorial plaques to cyclists killed on the Land's End to John O'Groats ride.

Two versions of the No Motor Vehicles signage.

It would be good if this link to Padstow church and Link Road (NCN32) could be marked as a through route for cyclists.

It would be easy to upgrade this section of coastal path for wheelchairs and cycling.

Cornish ferries are almost all open to cycles (and yes, they do have single fares)

No Cycling on this useful link to Port Isaac

Steps to the bridge over Padstow harbour gates, and anti-cyclist notice.

Padstow loves the Camel Trail, but they don't much like cycling - cyclists are expected to walk through a car park to the Camel Trail, but is there any similar advice or restrictions for drivers? Of course not.

Padstow loves the Camel Trail, but they don't much like cycling - on the direct link to Padstow Cycle Hire

There's nowhere much to park a bike in town so you're expected to park here and walk in.

Curved viaduct on the Camel Trail - also used by fire engines!

It's really not necessary to ban bikes from reaching the Padstow war memorial viewpoint.

Plans for cycle contraflow and othe rimprovements in Bodmin

Lots of cycle hire options along the Camel Trail

Proposal for improved cycle facilities on the Camel Trail, Bodmin

We wouldn't have to dismount if the dropped kerb was in the right place, we could just contine on the road like normal human beings.Why do British cycle routes get chopped up into these isolated portions/

Of course it's not the end of the cycle route, it's just a point from which you have to cycle on the road like a normal human being. Why do British traffic engineers have this irrestistible urge to make cycling on roads seem wrong?

No Motor Vehicles sign turned around at the rear of Bodmin College.

Proposals to improve cycling facilities at the junction of NCN route 3 and St Guron's Way, Bodmin

No Cycling sign hidden in the tree to top left.

Huge new Asda supermarket by Hayle harbour, with shared space around it.

Plan for redevelopment of Hayle harbour

Useful (very quiet) link across the A30 spoilt by an anal No Cycling sign (at one end only).

People Power - my friend's personal bus stop, which he campaigned for after a bus driver refused to drop him off there for the first time. One irony is that he gets free travel as an oldie.

Press coverage of the new Cycle Hub at the National Trust's Lanhydrock estate

End of token shared-use path, funded by the Sainsburys on the site of the much-lamented heliport - why on earth not encourage cyclists to continue?

Pedestrian access only to Prussia Cove.

Open Shed bike kitchen, Penzance

'Except Cycles' plate needed on this Dead End sign by the Cycle Centre in Penzance
