Walked from Padstow to Wadebridge. Such a great thing to have. The path is dog safe.......mine is a real explorer and regularly will be up banks and jumping fences and so to have a contained off lead walk for 9 miles was brilliant. We didn't pass many other people as the weather was dreadful, rainy and cold, however suspect that... More

We hired our bikes from camelcyclehire in wadebridge, who were very friendly and efficient. We had 2 adult bikes and a small bike with gears for our 6 yr old. He hasn't used gears before so we didn't know how he'd get on, but loved it! The trail is 5.5 miles from wadebridge to padstow (then 5.5 miles back again).... More

We hired a tandem in padstow and wobbled our way to wadebridge for lunch and then headed back. It was a lovely day out, lovely sights and really good value.

We rode 5.5 miles from Wadebridge to Padstow with our four year-old on a hired tag-along. The scenery was beautiful, the path wide and car-free, and the fish and chips at the end wonderful! Just make sure that the bike you hire has a bell as the path is used by lots of walkers too.

I have done this trail twice, starting in Padstow and doing the longer route to Wenfordbridge.I hired a bike in Padstow but bike hire is also available in Wadebridge and Bodmin.Beautiful views of the estuary, then into woodland passing old railway station platforms, a licenced cafe and just before the trail splits to go to Bodmin is the Borough Arms....

Went from Padstow with the idea of cycling to Bodmin (about 12 miles), but only got as far as Wadebridge as I was cold... It's a great cycle path, even better in winter normally as its pretty quiet, totally flat on the route to Wadebridge. It took us about 30 mins to do the 6 miles.... on previous visits we... More

The easy 5.5 mile cycle ride along the Camel Estuary to Padstow from Wadebridge on a sunny winter's day is great for both regular and occasional cyclists.

We rode the camel trail from Padstow to Bodmin, then NCN3 to Lanhydrock. The surface makes for easy riding and the first section is relatively flat, although Padstow to Wadebridge was very busy. From Wadebridge to Bodmin the scenery changes as does the incline and there are far fewer people around. Once in Bodmin we picked our way through to... More

Hired our bikes from Camel Trail Cycle Hire as they had parking very helpful we had a text in the morning telling us who to ask for even though we changed our minds about what bikes we wanted we were accommodated immediately. The trail was just across the road easy to walk or ride into padstow great fun
