Private - No Access by the main route through Tehidy Country Park

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.

Emd of Route signs on roads entering 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.

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.

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

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)

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.

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

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)

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)

Pedestrianisation (no cycling) on Wadebridge's main street

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)

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.

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.

Two versions of the No Motor Vehicles signage.

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

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

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!

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

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

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

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

Plan for redevelopment of Hayle harbour

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

Pedestrian access only to Prussia Cove.

Start of the Railway Siding and Historic Sand Drag (ie Hayle harbour branch) - basically a path, but it offers a cycle link between the station and the harbour (and NCN route 3).

Thanks, but I've no desire to take a bike down there anyway.

What a mess of signs! I think the cycle route sign refers to an on-road lane which ends about here.

Pendeen, with a curious "30mph still applies" sign. I wonder why a simple circular with red border 30 sign was not used. According to my GPS recording the double decker bus barely exceeded 30mph on the whole route from Sennen Cove to St ... [more]

This curious sign at Botallack reminds motorists that "30mph still applies". A journey on an open top double decker bus from Sennen Cove to St. Ives.

Penzance's main street usually seems like a one-way street, but you do find buses, bikes and taxis coming the other way.

No cycling - no problem as there's a parallel route to the right via South Parade Mews (not known to OpenCycleMap)

'Car Free Days' - detail from #33005

Cycles are carried on the Helford ferry - a vital link in the SouthWest peninsula coastal footpath, but less crucial for cyclists.

Rather than the official no cycling sign that is available in the highway code - a textual panel has been used here (with non-sensical grammar), indicating that perhaps cycling is not actually prohibited after all.

Footpath (but quite cycleable) into Tehidy Country Park

Cycle, bus and taxi contraflow on Penzance's main road, Market Jew St (jew as in jeudi, ie Thursday Market St)

Pointless signage (to a zebra crossing).

Bodmin Parkway station - Sustrans milepost and new sign showing position for loading cycles on High Speed Trains

Penzance - Dumping rubbish prohibited - but presumably bikes are allowed to squeeze through.
