At Roskilly's - the best ice cream in Cornwall

Aldi, Camborne - spaces for Click & Collect, Parents & Children, etc, but no cycle stands - still, it is right in the town centre.

Sign for cyclists on NCN route 3 to turn right at the toucan crossing ahead.

NCN route 3 continues ahead, cyclists turning right to Penzance station are supposed to dismount to cross a car park.

Side road for car storage and access to the coast path to Penzance - but not as yet the cycle route.

Short bridleway from Porthgwarra to the Coastwatch station

Love Lane - a bridleway out of Fowey, a bit narrow and slippery in places.

Cycle parking in the centre of St Ives

Three streets in St Ives that are miraculously free of parked cars.

A nice little cut-through in St Ives - except for the parked cars.

An unusual e-cargo bike in St Ives

Start of byway - I haven't tested it, but cyclists should be able to get through to the Helford River at the head of Porth Navas Creek.

Helston's main street closed all day for Flora Day.

The A394 in Helston briefly closed for Flora Day - only the 7am dance comes this way, the others stay closer to the town centre.

Well-hidden cycle stands alongside the platform at St Ives station.

Access to a road a couple of hundred metres away - but you can't take a bike either way on the coastal footpath.

In theory I suppose that's a modal filter up there. You could get a bike to the coast here but can't take it either way on the coastal footpath.

Pedestrian link from Causewayhead, Penzance, to new cycle parking in a car park.

.. but what is this nonsense? (see #182651) - Cyclists Dismount sign where cars are obviously free to move around - on the way to new cycle parking in a car park just off Causewayhead, Penzance. (And why so far above the ground?)

So far so good... sign to new cycle parking in a car park just off Causewayhead, Penzance

Two sets of cycle stands on NCN route 3 in Mevagissey

Ridiculous barriers to anyone except fit pedestrians on the way to the Mevagissey Model Railway

Sustrans 'milepost' on NCN route 3 entering Mevagissey

NCN route 3 crossing the A390 in Truro - no traffic lights, so good luck. There's a light-controlled crossing at Sainsbury's, not far to the west.

Lots of lycra leaving Land's End at 9am on a May Sunday morning.

No Cycling on this section of the Cornish coastal path owned by the National Trust

Not intended for cycling, but a short section of the Cornish coastal footpath has been improved by the National Trust for wheelchair use.

The West Kernow Way heads north from the A394.

Doing the West Kernow Way in reverse, you'd turn left here onto the A394 for about 300 metres.

The obvious coastal route into Falmouth - open for two-way motor traffic, although one-way with two-way cycling might be preferable.

Sign to bike shop, Liskeard

Cross the A394 here for a quiet route down into Helston

A slightly more direct back lane taking cyclists off the A394 for a couple of miles (signed as a dead-end to the right, though you could reach the A394 and Porthleven if you wanted)

The coast road has totally washed away, so there's only a footpath ahead - or turn left for the cycle route to Loe Bar
