Recommended Route #2
Medium 22 mile round trip from St Ives to Gwithian and Godrevy via Hayle.
A great option for when a strong wind is blowing from the West and the moorlands West of St Ives are too exposed. Although the roads can be busy in this direction, there are cycle lanes which avoid the worst and it is well worth the journey for the stunning beach and views from Godrevy Head. Look out for the seal colony!
Grab a pasty from the famous Philps bakery in Hayle or book a meal at buzzing Lula Shack
