We set off from Highcliffe, weaving down through Polzeath, as people were collecting their first coffee of the day. We passed Epphaven and meandered through the lanes to Port Quin, a quaint and sheltered cove. Some happy people were launching their kayaks into the sea.
Like any bike ride, what goes down, must come up. Good job the camera crew only needed 5 takes!
For those looking for an easy, safe cycle route suitable for all ages then the Camel Trail starting across the estuary in Padstow is the best option. With bike hire available at either end, the once busy section of train line is now enjoyed by walkers and cyclists as a flat and safe way to head down the river towards Wadebridge and Bodmin. If heading beyond Bodmin, look out for Snail’s Pace, a lovely cafe en route.
