Shared-use path by the A394, Helston

Three cycle stands at the foot of Castle Hill, Helston

The old road is actually still viable for cyclists as an alternative to slogging up the hill on the A394.

It's not a cycle route, but the bridge from Lidl to the boating lake in Helston keeps cyclists off the A394 for a little bit more.

Shared-use path from Helston past new housing development.

Shared-use path from new housing development into Helston.

Road closed with very restrictive barriers when motor traffic was diverted to a new development - pretty pointless, and I can't see anyone using it.

Cycle lane by the B3301 to Hayle from the St Erth roundabout; and for cyclists crossing the B3301 to stay on the A30 (not a great idea).

Clear line of desire for a route from the Helston Tesco to new housing and the new A394

Just a bit of white paint for cyclists here, although there was plenty of space to do something decent when the big new Tesco supermarket was built.

A new roundabout for a big new Tesco supermarket, but nothing has been done for cycling apart from a bit of white paint.

There's a need for cycle parking in the centre of Helston - the museum would be as good a site as any.
