Ride Directory

On this page, CTC Cornwall lists the routes and ride stats of some favourite local cycle rides  so  you can use them for your own leisure cycling in and around Cornwall.  The rides are currently categorised just in terms of length with details such as climb, following .  At a later date we hope to categorise them by reference to other factors such as location and climb. All routes have good refreshment stops at the locations marked in bold.   (Please also note the route sometimes shows a ride extension to Widegates where our route recorder lives – this also accounts for the discrepancy between the length on the Garmin file and the length of the ride given in the title.  You should ignore this part of the route – unless, of course, you would like to cycle to Widegates!).
