Great for walking, cycling, from Bodmin to Wadebridge, to Padstow, or visa versa,really flat as you would expect from a defunct railway line, sadly for walkers, a few, and I emphasis a few cyclists tend to cycle as if they are competing in the Toure de France. But the views are sensational especially the Padstow/ Wadebridge end.

The ride to padstowe is about 5.5 miles in each direction so doesnt take long. It isnt very difficult either so most people couldf manage it. You are given a padlock to lock up your bike and then youre free to do whatever. Would do again.

Bike hire was easy and staff were so friendly. They gave helpful advice about the Camel Trail and we chose the ride to Padstow. Lovely ride along the estuary - really recommended

We cycled only a small section of this well maintained disused railway track. To avoid traffic & car parking charges leave your car in the free designated spot about 1 mile down a narrow lane from St Issy/ trevance. From here you can cycle to Padstow one and a half miles or Wadebridge 4 ideal for young families. I was... More

Great to stop off at Camel Vally Vineyards, for a glass on the sun terrace. Recommend both the Padstow and Bodmin routes. Going to Bodmin follows the river through some beautiful forest and fascinating old train stations.

This was a "yes, we can" kind of bike place. They allowed us to try out the tandem and we took that to Padstow but when we went to Bodmin, we switched it to two bikes for nothing extra and no fuss. we didn't have a reservation on a busy Sunday morning and they could not have been nicer!

Lovely bikes, great staff. You can hire everything you need. Helmets, locks, trailers for kids and dogs and a tandem if you are feeling brave.
