Modal filter on a link to the cycleway under the railway at Dobwalls (on the old road, replaced by the new bypass).

The Dobwalls bypass road goes over the railway (on the left) but the cycleway goes under, presumably using the old road.

Cycleway on former mineral tramway south to Devoran

Shared-use path by the A394, Helston

Three cycle stands at the foot of Castle Hill, Helston

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

It's not a cycle route, but the bridge from Lidl to the boating lake in Helston keeps cyclists off the A394 for a little bit more.

Cycleway on former mineral tramway - meeting NCN route 3 in the middle distance

Muddy byway

Byway (swinging to the left) - not a particularly useful short-cut.

Cornwall's first mass vaccination centre for Covid-19 is in the middle of nowhere (Stithians Fairground) so cars are pretty much vital.

The sign shown in #105228 has been replaced but is just as vague - keep left for all those destinations (but right for the pub).

Route signs out of Camborne by the A3047

Route sign on the A3047 into Camborne

There's plenty of room to the right for a good route into Camborne (once one's past the mini-roundabout)

Cycle stands, shop and post box

This could be made into a decent route into Camborne

Cycleway across the A30 interchange, Camborne

Start of paved route to the A30 underpass and Camborne - many people ignore the request and walk on the edge of the field.

Route north from the A30 underpass - the path is muddy, and most people walk alongside.

Route north from the A30 underpass - for a paved route, it's quite remarkably muddy. It would be a useful commuting route with a little improvement.

Cycle parking at this new crematorium, just a mile or so out of Camborne

The Dobwalls bypass road goes over the railway but the cycleway goes under, presumably using the old road.

Start of track west from Leedstown

Absolutely brand new Co-op shop, and they've put the cycle stands as far away as possible from the entrance - so no-one will use them, and Co-op management won't bother next time.

Worrying road closure signs - in fact it refers to a side road, the main route to St Keverne was open.

Bridleway alongside the road to Penrose Farm in the National Trust's Penrose estate - as a cyclist I'd keep left here.

The National Trust has improved this section of the Cornish coastal path for wheelchairs, but it's not surprising that cyclists are using it too.
