Start of bridleway west of Gweek

The shared-use path alongside the A3083 past RNAS Culdrose needs to be extended to this roundabout - with a safe crossing to the left.

End of the shared-use path around RNAS Culdrose - this needs to be extended to the roundabout at the south end of the base.

When I was young (about 50 years ago) this was a T-junction with the road to Gweek and Mawgan to the left - now diverted around the south side of RNAS Culdrose.

The cycleway is in a bad state south from the entrance to RNAS Culdrose.

Flyover within RNAS Culdrose - there's no need for people cycling to work here to cross the A3083 on the level here.

The cycleway alongside the A3083 past RNAS Culdrose - with a memorial for someone probably killed in a car crash.

Bridleway around the east side of RNAS Culdrose - not easy to cycle here.

Bridleway north of Gweek, Cornwall

The road parallel to the A394 now appears to just be a lay-by - it would be good to sign it to get cyclists off the A road.

No Motor Vehicles except for access - potentially useful for cyclists towards Mylor.

NO - cyclists should be given a ramp onto the carriageway, with clear warning signs for motorists.

Cycle parking at Sainsbury's, Penryn - not much of it but marginally more convenient than some of the car parking.

Lots of bikes on the last train of the day from Truro to Falmouth.

There are lots of handy cut-throughs in this area of Truro

NCN route 32 leaving Truro

NCN route 32 passes to the left of Truro Methodist Church, but in fact this route through the car park is more direct.

Obstructions on NCN route 32 in Truro - the route through the car park to the left of Truro Methodist Church is more direct anyway.

Route sign into Truro from the Quiet Lanes

The cycle route sign at the start of the Quiet Lanes northwest of Truro has been turned around a bit.

The very narrow quiet lanes northwest of Truro have been closed to motor vehicles except for access - cue the familiar complaints about war on motorists etc.

The signed cycle route to Truro station involves the steep steps to a footbridge over the railway.

This is signposted as a cycle route to Truro station

Left turn on NCN route 3 west from Truro

Road closure in Truro - NCN route 3 is on the road to the left, so it would be good to have easier passage here for cycles.
