Probably our favourite cycle route, with a nice distance that leaves time in the day for a relaxed lunch in Zennor. This combines beautiful coastal scenery, rugged, wind-swept moors with Cornwall’s rich history. Passing abandoned mining buildings and the ancient sites of Lanyon Quoit and Chysauster, you will see a side to the Duchy that most visitors to St Ives miss.
