Self-Guided Cycling Holidays in Cornwall - Invigorate the Senses

Our self-guided cycle holidays will immerse you in the best of Cornwall’s countryside and coast, where you can revel in the delight of dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches, or the captivating villages like Mevagissey and Port Isaac, nestled in a timeless landscape. We have combined the most breathtaking cycle routes, so you can ride enchanted on quiet country lanes and the beautiful Camel Trail, breathing deep the fresh air with the wind in your hair. Nature never felt so close!

You can cycle at your own pace, with friends, family or as a couple or solo on this magical tour in Cornwall. 

Electric bikes are available on all our cycling tours.

Reconnect with Nature in Devon and Cornwall

Just 4 hours from London, Cornwall is the jewel in England’s coastal crown. On our cycling tours we take advantage of the stunning rail to trail and quiet country lanes around the South West Coast, with incredible views around every headland, clifftop and beachfront. 

If you’re looking for something a little bit more, how about taking to the water to surf, paddle and go coasteering on your own Cornwall Adventure Holiday, or head to the North to cycle Coast to Coast through the Lake District and North Pennines?

Visit Iconic Places on our Cornwall Tours

With so many remarkable places to visit, including the artistic seaside sanctuary of St Ives, featuring Tate St Ives, Rick Stein’s foody heaven of Padstow and the otherworldly Lost Gardens of Heligan, England’s coast has something for everyone. With whole host of secluded little villages and charming towns both by the sea and inland, you will be mesmerised by Cornwall each day.

Top things you need to know before visiting Cornwall

What is the best way to get out of London into Cornwall?

The best way out of London and into Cornwall is by train, from Paddington direct to Bodmin Parkway in four hours, and also easily accessible from Bristol and the Midlands  by train. From Bodmin you can head directly out on our bikes for a leisurely ride out to the Coast. You’ll finish the day with your toes in the sand and a pint in your hand by the sea! If you prefer to drive, there is station parking available at Bodmin Parkway. 

How fit and active do I need to be to come on a cycle tour?

On our self-guided trips we have different length route options for those wishing to travel further or faster, and for those looking for a more leisurely ride. Daily route options vary from 30-50 miles on average. You can always upgrade to an e-bike if you prefer!

Why go on a self-guided cycle tour in Cornwall?

With exceptionally well-planned routes, our self-guided tours are designed to suit the independent traveller, couples or groups; those who wish to travel at their own pace and speed. With Ride With GPS and maps, we detail all of the points of interests, lunch stops, cafes – and of course pubs! Cycle at your leisure, safe in the knowledge that a support team and emergency support vehicle is always on standby, and your luggage will be waiting for you at the end of the day.
