  • I could definitely see three days but two days would be pushing it for me (not super fit so take from that what you want)

    There are stretches which are hike a bike territory which slow you down. I'd definitely look into what right of ways are blocked which will save you time

  • right of ways are blocked

    Blocked right of ways? Like someone has fenced them off or they're impassable because of brambles or something.

  • In one case a kissing gate had been constricted to prevent person with a bike getting through (walker wouldn't have had any problems) and the fence above extended so you couldn't comfortably climb over.

    In another case a tractor was parked in a way that blocked an access way as it narrowed, blocking access for pedestrians as well as cyclists. I let Cycling UK know and they recommended getting in touch with Cornwall Council to add some pressure for action


  • Nice one. Ta

  • There's been an update from Cycling UK suggesting a route around the former blockage. Would recommend taking this as going up around the coastal path is not much fun (carrying bikes up steps then bashing through to the original route)

  • Hopefully doing this over 4 days this weekend. Any up to the second intel?

  • Make your aim Porthtowan for Saturday or Tuesday as the forecast looks amazing?

  • will do a proper write up later but overall, I thought it was great! Highly recommend.
