Road converted to one-way for motor-vehicles with a two-way shared-use path.

Signs at start of contraflow cycle route to the left

Narrow bridge. I grew up near here and we all cycled to our summer jobs - but I'd never seen a lycra-clad cyclist here until yesterday. [update 2022 - since the launch of the CTC's West Kernow Way this year we're seeing a lot of bike-pac ... [more]

Double yellow lines on Penzance's main shopping street, ie parking for cars with disabled permits. Most traffic is uphill here with only buses, taxis and bikes going downhill.

Sat-navs often show that you have to turn left here but it is possible to turn right here and follow the lane parallel to the A30.

Useful route for cyclists parallel to the A30

Shared-use access to West Cornwall Shopping Park

Amazing - the only access to the shared-use footway at the A30 roundabout is through McDonald's. I wonder who funded it?

The short and pretty pointless stretch of shared-use footway by the A30 roundabout leads only to McDonald's! Not even a link to take cyclists off the old A30 here. I wonder who paid for this?

Anyone would think this was a proper cycleway around the A30 roundabout.
