West Kernow Way

  • Another one from Cycling UK.

    "Botallack tin mines, the Bronze Age monument Mên-an-Tol, Land’s End, St Michael’s Mount and Lizard Point"

    "Expect spectacular coastal scenery" - I am in for this reason alone.

    230km 4200m - so wont be easy but rewarding - lots of nice camping spots on the way. The beaches in the area are arguably some of the best the UK has.

    Here's the route -


  • I've pre ordered the guide but I don't think I'll have a go until next spring at the earliest.

  • I’m doing it one go the weekend after. It’s only 230k so even if the terrain is tough it won’t be that hard.

  • question; how does Cycling UK make money out of this?

  • I think mostly from selling the guide book.

    But they're a charity so don't really have to make money presumably?

  • Silly question perhaps but where does it start and finish?

  • Penzance I think.

  • I’m hoping it comes somewhere near me (Tywardreath).

  • ah ok, I mean if they are putting in effort for this they should get paid somehow charity or not ..

    Route just dropped.

    I know nothing about the area so... Looks cool? I guess the influencers who have already ridden the route will release some pieces soon.

  • 236km 2984m according to RWGPS.

  • three week holiday starts in a week. tempted.

  • Three weeks is probably the ideal amount of time to ride it.

    Seems a bit more technical and involved than KAW.

    I'm going to perhaps have a go next spring.

  • It uses a a few footpaths that they are arguing that they are historical right of ways. This article is really interesting.

  • Oooo nice - thanks for sharing

  • Sure the ramblers will have something to say about that

  • little preview of the route. If you mute it it makes him more bearable.


  • His preview of the KAW was awful, but it was good to see the terrain.

  • he does sound the type of person you dont want to be sat next too for any length of time anywhere.

  • Has anyone received their guide book yet? Thought I pre ordered one but not seen anything in the post.

    Thinking of targeting September/August next year. Still need to rebuild my bike after king Alfred way mud destroyed all the moving parts.
