Cycling On The Roseland

If you are looking for a cycling weekend break why not consider South Cornwall as your destination in general and the Roseland Peninsula in particular?

On the basis that the 180 mile Cornish Way is more than you would wish to undertake in a weekend, why not try cycling the Feock Loop or the St Anthony headland?

The Feock Loop cycle route http://www.cycle-route.com/routes/Feock_loop-Cycle-Route-6663.html is a 46 mile / 75 kilometre moderately difficult loop starting on the south coast and going up to and along the North Coast before returning to Feock.

The St Mawes to St Anthony Head loop which has some fantastic views out over Falmouth Bay and the Carrick Roads, see picture, is around 9 miles / 15 kilometres in length but can be made longer by continuing along the coast up to Portloe.

If you have a bit longer then the Cornish Way runs for 180 miles from Land's End to Holsworthy, passing through historic towns, fishing villages and beautiful countryside on the way. The Cornish Way comprises five trails, plus the Camel Trail, providing a total of 180 miles/288km, for walkers and cyclists. Where possible, sections have been made available for the mobility impaired and some sections of off-road route are also available for equestrian use.
