A good flat ride. Slightly busy on the day we went but could still get a good speed up. Nice crepe van at the end in Padstow.

In the past we have cycled the trail. However, we had the dog so did a 12 mile round trip with lunch and an ice cream in Padstow. Lovely views and an easy to walk path. There is a new coffee stop halfway to Padstow....More

We cycled from Wadebridge to Bodmin. It was a great ride and fun for everyone. Can't agree with the previous reviewer about being too busy to enjoy. It was quite busy but everyone was very considerate and we had a great time. There are places...More

This is a really nice gentle trail along the estuary – beautiful scenery. We hired our bikes at Wadebridge and also hired a small tow-along for our cockapoo. We have done this route many times over the years. Very easy ride for children and adults...More

We hired bikes in Padstow and set off early and covered most of the trail. Breathtaking views and a very well maintained trail made the cycle ride enjoyable and relatively easy. The train at Boscane Station was a treat - a bit of modern history...More

Family with a 5 year old and 3 year old. Great time had by all! Lovely coffee shop in Wadebridge that sell fab cakes. Well worth the money!

Off road trail that follows the river camel from Padstowe to Bodmin. Beware of large numbers of inexperienced and young riders during peak holiday season which can spoil your ride/walk.

also note the section from Bodmin to Wadebridge is at a slight downhill incline all the way so its nice and easy in that direction. It will take longer to return !
