No idea how I've managed to miss this for so many years - CTC Headquarters winged wheel, Helston

This is where cyclists want parking - by the café on the town side of Asda - not at the rear in the car park.

I think all the crossings here are Toucans, allowing cyclists on NCN route 3 to change sides.

Dropped kerb and route sign (up on the tree) where cyclists on NCN route 3 used to come off the road, before the shared-use route was extended to the crossings at Asda.

Sustrans milepost on NCN route 3 west from Hayle

NCN route 3 towards Hayle, and track up to the Iron Age hill fort

Track from the Iron Age hill fort, Hayle, joining NCN route 3

Track towards NCN route 3 past the Iron Age hill fort, Hayle

Planters with olive trees! in Hayle, and one cycle stand at each end of the two lay-bys ie a massive 4 in all.

Minor cut-through, Hayle

Track in a former tin-mining area

A byway, I think

A better picture of Beryl sharing bikes at Truro station

St Austell station - new bridge with lifts, and just 3 Sheffield stands on this rather odd north side of the station.

Cycle stands on the westbound platform at St Austell station

Just 2 cycle stands outside St Austell station

Byway - this just loops back to Leedstown, but is an alternative to the B3302

It's not marked on the online maps, but this footway links to the Truro-Tresilian cycle route

It's not marked on the online maps, but the footway across the road links to the Truro-Tresilian cycle route

Tresemple pond seen on the left hand side about halfway between St Clement and Tresillian. The pond is a tidal pond.

End of asphalt and start of unpaved link to the bridleway bridge over the railway.

There's an asphalt path parallel to the left, but it's easier to use this access road.

Asphalt footpath from Hayle station

The lane from Carbis Bay to Lelant - perhaps a better option than the shared-use path which leaves cyclists on the congested main road through Lelant.

No Cycling on this path past Lelant church to the beach

No Cycling on this footbridge over the railway - I'm not sure you could legally get a bike to this point anyway.

The lane from Carbis Bay to Lelant - perhaps a better option than the shared-use path which leaves cyclists on the congested main road through Lelant.

Start of bridleway to #188813

Footpath leading to a bridleway

Bridleway towards Hayle

National speed limit on this byway around the west side of Leedstown

Footpath on the National Trust's Godolphin Estate - this could easily be opened up for cycling

Route to car park and bridleway on the National Trust's Godolphin Estate

The cycle parking at the National Trust's Godolphin House is at the far end of the disabled car park. Obviously. No need for any signage then. Unlike for the walking routes to the route.

So that's where the cycle parking is at the National Trust's Godolphin House - at the far end of the disabled car park. Obviously. No need for any signage then.

Right-angle turn on quiet road coming out at the top end of Truro station

How many cars can you fit into one closed road?

NCN route 3 forks left here (it's quite a busy road)

Modal filter on cut-through in Truro

This seems to be a one-way link from NCN route 32 to NCN route 3

Junction of NCN route 32 and a variant link to NCN route 3

There are no bike stands here, despite the obvious need in central Truro - these bikes are on their own stands.

Pedestrian and cycle zone (I think the van had a disabled permit)

No Entry except buses, cycles and taxis

Unobtrusive route sign for NCN route 3 - turn right heading westwards (or left heading eastwards)

Dropped kerb and modal filter on pedestrian route to the centre of Truro

Pedestrian routes ahead and right to the centre of Truro

Quieter routes ahead and right towards Truro station

Footway build-out to make the junction safer - there's a quieter route from the station to the centre to the right.

Cornwall Council's Beryl Bikes have reached Truro station

Bridleway around the north side of Gweek.

Start of bridleway around the north side of Gweek.

Rather random starting point for a shared-use footway into Truro

The road from the A30 to Zelah has been closed to motor traffic and made cycles-only (NCN32) during the A30 dialling works. The cycle light changes at the same time as the main light so is a bit pointless.

NCN route 32 diversion during A30 dialling works

NCN route 3 in Newlyn - the road narrows to a single lane in places, but cyclists can generally keep going.

A large hatched area for just two bike stands in a Newlyn car park

What a shame - a lovely shelter on this industrial estate, with a useless wheelbender rack

Bridleway (not shown as such on the online maps)

Bridleway by the River Hayle

Bikepacking the hard way - with a rucksack. Cornish hills are steep, too, and just as you get into your stride they end.

Permissive path (actually a paved road) through the Trelowarren estate to the café and craft centre

No cycle parking at the Trelowarren café and craft centre, but they'll be fine just leaning on the wall.

Ilex avenue on the the permissive path (actually a paved road) through the Trelowarren estate to the café and craft centre

The permissive path (actually a paved road) through the Trelowarren estate to the café and craft centre is supposedly closed from October to January - I'm not convinced it really is.

No Footpath, No Bridleway

Bridleway above Chysauster

Start of path beneath the railway - quite rough and narrow in places
