The Cornish Way - Starting at the county boundary near Bude, the Cornish Way is six inter-linking trails for cyclists and walkers which pass through towns and villages as they make their way through Cornwall's distinctive countryside to Land's End. Certain off-road routes are also accessible to equestrians and the mobility-impaired.
The routes follow mainly minor and rural roads with some traffic-free and off-road routes too. The trails are suitable for new or novice cyclists as well as some challenging routes for the more experienced.
