Cycle the Camel Trail
Padstow to Bodmin
Freewheel along 18 miles of disused railway between Padstow, Wadebridge and Bodmin. The route takes you along the banks of the Camel Estuary and through the Camel Valley on a fairly level, family-friendly trail.
The five miles from Padstow to Wadebridge tends to be the busiest, what with its stunning estuary views and the promise of a lunch-stop at Stein's Fish and Chips, while the six miles from Wadebridge to Bodmin is a beauty, wending through lush valley scenery, past old railway bridges, plenty of waterside picnic spots and the Camel Valley Vineyard. The last stretch onto Bodmin Moor is the only section that throws up a few hills as it emerges from the woods to the granite tors, so this is the section to get away from packs of families trundling along the flats.
