Shared-use route towards the Royal Cornwall Hospital

Signs on shared-use route between Truro College and the Royal Cornwall Hospital - not mentioning either.

Crossing and ramped route to Truro College

Crossing at Truro College - but where's all the cycle parking?

Paved link to Truro College

Shared-use footway towards Truro College - although one could also use the service road to the left for a short distance

Cycle crossing between Truro College and the Royal Cornwall Hospital

Pointless barriers on this link to new housing

Paved bridleway from the A390

Shared-use route to Truro College crossing a side-road

Closed driveway by the A390 shared-use route

Not much room for the bus stop and the shared-use route opposite the Royal Cornwall Hospital

No right turn to the Royal Cornwall Hospital except local buses and cycles - but the marking on the road surface is buses only, and I don't know how many cyclists would want move across two lanes of motor traffic here.

Shared-use path by the A390

No Motor Vehicles on this link to the A390 and the Royal Cornwall Hospital, but it's not the most cycle-friendly either.

Footpath to the A390 - no problem, there's a proper cycleway behind the camera

Start of Bramble Lane, Truro - a wasted resource

New path parallel to Bramble Lane

No connection to Bramble Lane

New path parallel to Bramble Lane

Closure of rat-run parallel to the A390

Clearly marked as a footpath only, who knows why cycles aren't welcome?

Typical car-dominated housing development, despite being five minutes by bike from the centre of Truro

End (ie start) of shared-use footway and footpath off the A390

Crossing and footpath off the A390

Bus lane into Truro and two-way shared-use footway

The lower route to Truro station turns right here, but you wouldn't know it.

Cycle crossing of the A390

Two routes to Truro station and city centre - not sure I'd want to take the downhill one

Cycle route through road closure

The cycle route veers away from the A390 here to a parallel road

Shared-use cycleway into Truro by the A390

Shared-use footway with 'contraflow' cyclist towards the Royal Cornwall Hospital

Choice of shared-use footway (mostly used by cyclists towards the camera/hospital) and bus lane towards Truro

Road signed as a pedestrian entrance to the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and shared-use footway into Truro

Shared-use by the A390 and stub of former road to the left - no use to cyclists now.

End of shared-use section of footway entering the Royal Cornwall Hospital

The only cycle parking I saw at the Royal Cornwall Hospital - and it's useless!

Acres of car parking at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and no sign of any cycle parking. Why does the NHS find this so diificult?

There is NO proper cycle parking anywhere near the main entry to the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Why does the NHS find this so diificult?

Boscawen Street, part of the NCN looking towards City Hall and the war memorial.

A clear end to the new shared-use path

Cyclists are encouraged to leave the carriageway here and use the new island to reach the new shared-use path to the right.

The shared-use path leaves the A390 here and runs along a parallel residential road.

Shared-use path through bus-stop, Truro

Shared-use path and crossing, Truro

Shared-use path past Pizza Hut & McDonald's, Truro

Crossing of new shared-use path to bus/cycle lane at Langarth Park P&R, Truro

Sign to a couple of Sheffield stands by Mevagissey harbour

Mevagissey harbour, where driving is allowed but cycling is not - though that surely wouldn't stand up in a court of law.

Start of foot/cycle route from the centre of Mevagissey to the north

Somehow cars do get squeezed in to the back streets of Mevagissey

The bottom of the foot/cycle route down to Mevagissey harbour from the north.

The bottom of Ciff St, supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north. Probably best to dismount here and go either left or right.

Supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north - keep left here.

Alternative route just above the main A3074 into St Ives - it would be nice if (one day) cyclists could use this in both directions.

One-way, no motor vehicles except for access - it would be nice if contraflow cycling could be permitted here.

Skidden Hill (ie skidding...) - now one-way, but it would be nice if cyclists could go down this way to central St Ives.

Byway past Wheal Owles (the 'Poldark' mine, with a bit of help from CGI)

Route sign on the byway between the National Trust's Levant and Botallack mines

Start of paved bridleway down to Porthgwarra

Bridleway to Porthcurno beach

A German mountain biker went over a cliff near here and died last year - you really shouldn't be cycling on the Cornish Coastal Footpath.

Staff cycle parking (mainly) at Land's End, cluttered up with motor bikes

Riders on a van-supported Land's End-John O'Groats ride posing for a photo (a couple of hundred metres from the actual end of the land).

New sign at the start of NCN route 3 (The Cornish Way) - 'The National Cycle Network starts and finishes here!'

There's a Pushchair Park on St Michael's Mount but no cycle parking

There's a Pushchair Park on St Michael's Mount but no cycle parking

No cycling from St Michael's Mount to the mainland for the next few hours, and no bikes on the boats.

At last the roadworks (with Cyclists Dismount and go somewhere unspecified signs) on the A30 have finished and there's a new rail/bus interchange - cyclists are told to dismount to cross to the station, and there's no indication at all that ... [more]

At last the roadworks (with Cyclists Dismount and go somewhere unspecified signs) on the A30 have finished and there's a new rail/bus interchange and remarkably good signage (in this direction only) for NCN route 3.

They've fixed the bent cycle stand at the Minack Theatre!

Traffic-free bridge, Mawgan Porth

A new sign (in the distance) marking out Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant - but no real cycle parking.

No Cycling on the footpath across St Enodoc Golf Club

Very small No Cycling sign on the National Trust's Trevose Head property - but you'd be unlikely to get this far with a bike anyway.

Short dead-end section of bridleway on the Cornish coast

Under-used cycle parking at Sainsbury's, Helston

Alternative to the A394 roundabout and a couple of hundred metres of the main road into Helston

Crossings on shared-use path by the A394, Helston

The black bridge over the railway tracks at Truro station

Filling station at St Dennis looking towards the incinerator.

Shared use track at Threemilestone

The new shared use track linking Threemilestone Industrial Estate with Lower Hugus Road.

I've no idea why there's a cycle symbol on the end door - bikes would never be loaded that way.

Some mistake - the road on the left leads to St Martin, Manaccan and Helford, the road to the right is just a loop that rejoins it in a few hundred metres. But the pub/restaurant sign is correct.

Two trees down overnight on the National Trust's Tremayne Woods property.
