Cyclists give way to everyone - on the bridleway constructed by the National Trust between Porthleven and the Penrose Estate

The coast road has totally washed away, so there's only a footpath ahead - or turn left for the cycle route to Loe Bar

Modal filter, Porthleven (there is a slightly wider road to the left)

Bridleway closed by a gate - it only leads to footpaths anyway.

Excellent bridleway from Kynance Cove to the Lizard - part of Cycling UK's new West Kernow Way

This could be a useful link to Tesco and the north side of Helston.

This cut-through is the only route into Helston that doesn't require using the A394 bypass, and should have been built for cycling from the start.

Dropped kerb, but barriers too - this cut-through is the only route into Helston that doesn't require using the A394 bypass, and should have been built for cycling from the start.

New housing off the Helston bypass - car-dominated, of course, but with traffic-calming and the roads are relatively narrow and don't encourage fast driving.

A cut-through that's shown on online mapping as a dead-end (clear enough on an OS map though).

A cut-through that's not on online mapping - probably an historic route to/from Mawgan church.

It's bizarre to have a closed road past Penair School, Truro, but only stepped access to the school.

No dropped kerb, not signed as cycle access to Waitrose - the road access is a very long way around.

Not a cycle shelter, and not signed as cycle access to Waitrose - the road access is a very long way around.

NCN route 3 arriving in Truro - cyclists can use the shared-use footway to cross the A390 just the left.

Bridleway towards Carnon Downs

Bridleway (marked as BLOCKED on OpenCycleMap - no idea if that's still true)

The shared-use path alongside the A3083 past RNAS Culdrose needs to be extended to this roundabout - with a safe crossing to the left.

End of the shared-use path around RNAS Culdrose - this needs to be extended to the roundabout at the south end of the base.

When I was young (about 50 years ago) this was a T-junction with the road to Gweek and Mawgan to the left - now diverted around the south side of RNAS Culdrose.

The cycleway is in a bad state south from the entrance to RNAS Culdrose.

Flyover within RNAS Culdrose - there's no need for people cycling to work here to cross the A3083 on the level here.

The cycleway alongside the A3083 past RNAS Culdrose - with a memorial for someone probably killed in a car crash.

Bridleway around the east side of RNAS Culdrose - not easy to cycle here.

Bridleway passing the NE corner of RNAS Culdrose - it would be great if there as a route all the way around to Helston.
