Cycleway or shared-use route needed here

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

Footpath towards Marazion - NCN route 3 uses the road and turns left in the middle distance

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

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

NCN route 32 heading south from Newquay (route sign just out of sight to the right)

New bridleway on the National Trust's Penrose Estate

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

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

The West Kernow Way heads north from the A394.

The West Kernow Way turns left 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.

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)

A slightly more direct back lane taking cyclists off the A394 for a couple of miles

New housing off the Helston bypass - car-dominated, of course, but with traffic-calming and the roads are relatively narrow and don't encourage fast driving.

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.

Ford at New Mills - on the very narrow quiet lanes northwest of Truro, now closed to motor vehicles except for access - cue the familiar complaints about war on motorists etc.

Start of lane to Malpas and St Clement

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

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.

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

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.

Cycle lane in the dooring zone in Penryn

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

Pop-up seating on Boscawen St, Truro

Traffic-calming on NCN route 3 in Carnon Downs

Short on-road section of Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail

Crossing of the A39 to the car park at the Devoran end of Cornwall's Coast-to-Coast Trail

Quiet route west from the Penryn University Campus to Mabe Burnthouse

Breage church - start of a back lane to take cyclists off the A394 for a couple of miles

The cycleway ends at this crossing of the A393

Crossings at the A393/A3047 junction

Traffic calming with cycle bypass, Falmouth

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

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

NCN route 3 to Lamorna

NCN route 3 west from the Lamorna junction

NCN route 3 makes a very sharp turn here, from north-east to north-west.

The nearby lanes are all very quiet, but the B3293 is a busy road and cars go very fast especially on this straight - speed cameras would help.

Good permeability on this housing development on the edge of Truro.

Widen footway outside Spar and up to surgery and stop pavement parking. Close Market Road to vehicles. Will make safer space for passing queuing people to surgery and pharmacy.

Narrow pavements and parked cars prevent distancing. Close and pedestrianise. Vehicles can enter via roundabout and exit via Sungirt-Heathlands.

Council proposing a virtual footway only. This is a route to schools and used by all walking to fom from north west (lowest income, lowest car use LSOA) in town. Also route for disabled users at Echo Centre and Passmore Court extra care. A ... [more]

Poor footway by the A30 Penzance bypass near the youth hostel

Poor footway by the A30 Penzance bypass near the youth hostel

Poor crossing of the A30 from Penzance youth hostel to the path into town.

The No Entry sign in the distance actually leads to Penlee Park in Penzance

Virgin 'Street' in St Ives

End of footpath (which should be widened for shared use) at the north end of Helston.

The newish A394 Helston bypass, with no cycling facilities

Informal pedestrian crossings only at this roundabout on the newish A394 Helston bypass

The newish A394 Helston bypass, with no cycling facilities

The Leats, a quiet lane behind Truro's main shopping streets

Just a bit of white paint for cyclists here, although there was plenty of space to do something decent when the big new Tesco supermarket was built.

A new roundabout for a big new Tesco supermarket, but nothing has been done for cycling apart from a bit of white paint.

Back lane in Helston, leading to footpath across the road.

Cycle lane on the A30 St Erth roundabout - not very welcoming.

Cycle lane by the A30 (it's a better idea to take the old road via Hayle unless you like fast motor traffic)

Cycle lane by the B3301 to Hayle from the St Erth roundabout; and for cyclists crossing the B3301 to stay on the A30 (not a great idea).

Cycle lane on the A30 St Erth roundabout - not very welcoming.

Cycle lane on the A30 at the St Erth roundabout

More confusing backstreet routes in Penzance

There is NO proper cycle parking anywhere near the main entry to the Royal Cornwall Hospital. Why does the NHS find this so diificult?

Typical car-dominated housing development, despite being five minutes by bike from the centre of Truro

Crossing and footpath off the A390

The lower route to Truro station turns right here, but you wouldn't know it.

Acres of car parking at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, and no sign of any cycle parking. Why does the NHS find this so diificult?

Start of foot/cycle route from the centre of Mevagissey to the north

Mevagissey harbour, where driving is allowed but cycling is not - though that surely wouldn't stand up in a court of law.

The bottom of Ciff St, supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north. Probably best to dismount here and go either left or right.

Supposedly a dead end and unsuitable for motor vehicles - in fact a quiet route for cycles (with good brakes) into Mevagissey from the north - keep left here.

Alternative route just above the main A3074 into St Ives - it would be nice if (one day) cyclists could use this in both directions.

Alternative to the A394 roundabout and a couple of hundred metres of the main road into Helston

Filling station at St Dennis looking towards the incinerator.

Boscawen Street, part of the NCN looking towards City Hall and the war memorial.

End of concrete bridleway from Degibna to Helston

Alternative route down to Helston avoiding the A394

Link to the coastal path, St Ives

Space has been found to rebuild the A39/A392/B3292 roundabout with two traffic lanes, and no cycle facilities - it was hostile enough before, but it's worse now.

Steep climb on this alley out of St Ives

Alley down into the heart of St Ives

Poor crossing of the A3074 between Carbis Bay and Lelant

Trafalgar Roundabout in the snow

Snow plough on Morlaix Avenue

Crossroads of St Austell Street, St Clement Street and Mitchell Hill looking towards Truro Cathedral in the snow.

Tregolls Road looking outbound in the snow

Entry to the Penzance Park & Ride (not yet open)

Work is needed on this crossing if the path to the left is to provide off-road access to Helston.

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]

Semi-traffic-free route to central Truro

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.

Useful route for cyclists parallel to the A30

Very un-cycle friendly roundabout on the A30

Penzance's main street closed to traffic for Montol, the winter solstice festival.
