Penrose cycling

For those looking for a quick stretch of the legs or a fun adventure with the family, there’s Helston Drive. Offering smooth tarmacked bridleway which leads from Helston, through woodland and parkland to the Stables Café – a perfect spot to refuel and relax.

And for those after a quieter ride more off the beaten track, the network of woodland trails around Degibna and Carminowe offer stunning views of Loe Pool, out over the iconic Loe Bar Beach. The trails take in a wide range of woodland and grasslands teeming with wildlife, so keep your eyes out for fluttering butterflies and beautiful birds.

Over the last few years there has been a big project to remove or replace any stiles or kissing gates on our bridleways with all-user friendly gates, which can be opened without having to get off your bike, allowing you more time in the saddle.

Don’t worry if don’t have your own bike either, as bikes can be rented locally from our friends at Porthleven Cycle Hire,  meaning everyone can come and explore the fantastic countryside we have to offer.

For a downloadable map of all of our cycle routes, please click below or pop into the Stables Café and grab a fold out map to take on your adventure.
