How does that work? Cycle parking without stands...

Pop-up lane closure following the closure of Market Jew St, Penzance, to private vehicles

Misleading sign - the only cyclists who would rejoin the carriageway are those who want to stay on the A3047 Treleigh bypass for some reason - most will obviously keep left to go through the village.

Link to the Cardew Industrial Estate, Redruth

Route signs and toucan crossing at the junction of routes by the A3047 and through the Cardew Industrial Estate

End of shared-use cycleway (with a useful cut-through from the right as well)

The cycleway ends at this crossing of the A393

Crossings at the A393/A3047 junction

When Treleigh was bypassed, decent arrangements were made for cyclists to use the old road through the village.

Signs for NCN route 3 and the byway to Devoran

Two asphalted byways into Perranwell

Byway to Devoran to the left, footpath to the right

Start of byway from Perranwell to Devoran

Lots of cycle routes around Perranwell station

Bridleway from Perranwell to Frogpool

Greenwith Lane - public byway

Start of byway from Perranwell towards Bargus Farm and Frogpool

Tough choice - granite stile on the footbridge, or a muddy ford (not a problem, in fact)

Rough section of byway from Perranwell towards Bargus Farm and Frogpool; and footpath to the right

Ahead to Bargus Farm; turn left (off the asphalt) to Perranwell

No Cycling, basically.

Narrow overgrown bridleway - virtually useless for cycling (although it would be an alternative to the A394).

Cycle parking hidden at the back of the car park.

Traffic calming with cycle bypass, Falmouth

Modal filter on a link to the cycleway under the railway at Dobwalls (on the old road, replaced by the new bypass).

The Dobwalls bypass road goes over the railway (on the left) but the cycleway goes under, presumably using the old road.

Cycleway on former mineral tramway south to Devoran

Shared-use path by the A394, Helston

Three cycle stands at the foot of Castle Hill, Helston

The old road is actually still viable for cyclists as an alternative to slogging up the hill on the A394.

It's not a cycle route, but the bridge from Lidl to the boating lake in Helston keeps cyclists off the A394 for a little bit more.

Segregated route from the boating lake, Helston

Cycle route around Helston boating lake to avoid the A394 roundabouts.

Newham trail

Track bed cut back near to County Hall

Newly cut back former track for the Newham branch line to connect to the main line towards Truro station.

Bridge over the back road between Treyew Road and Penwethers

The track that would have led to the main branch line Penzance bound which has now been cut back.

small bridge that leads across from the St Clement walk towards Tresillian

Denas Road sign indicating that no cycling is permitted on that section.

Cycleway on former mineral tramway - meeting NCN route 3 in the middle distance

Muddy byway

Byway (swinging to the left) - not a particularly useful short-cut.

Cornwall's first mass vaccination centre for Covid-19 is in the middle of nowhere (Stithians Fairground) so cars are pretty much vital.

The sign shown in #105228 has been replaced but is just as vague - keep left for all those destinations (but right for the pub).

Sunshine on the cycle route at Newham

Cycling in the National Trust's Tremayne estate

Break My Neck Lane - which turned out to be a perfectly normal paved Cornish road.
