- Riding near Padstow
I’m off on holiday with the whole family (outlaws included, yey) and I’m planning on taking my bike down to get a day of riding in.
The main stumbling block is, what kind of riding is readily available / easily accessible down there? And what would be the best bike to take, CX or MTB?
I know one day the plan is for me and the brother-in-law to ride the camel trail with the little’uns in trailers (presuming you can hire them) and meet the women & outlaws at the other end for lunch or whatever.Posted 4 years agocrispy baconMember
Take the MTB and ride up the Camel trail towards Bodmin there is stuff to ride in Grogley, Hustyns & Dunmere woods on the way up although you may need a local guide unless you’re happy to explore on your own.
As others have said Cardinham Woods is worth a visit but it’s short @ 4 or 5 miles a lap so 3 or 4 laps will only be a half day ride, the cafe is nice though.Posted 4 years agoasterixMember

I’ve just got back from Padstow – I took the CX bike, to squeeze in road and trail rides. I didn’t manage any full days, just several early morning blasts, did Camel Trail a couple times, likewise Cardinham, which was a lot of fun on the cross bike (I did the first Red bit, missed the second bit out)
We hired from the hire shop by the lobster hatchery for my wife, no troubles – basic bike, but was in good condition.Posted 4 years ago
Just back from Polzeath (other side of the Camel estuary to Padstow) and rode Cardinham Woods, and a bit of cheeky early morning action on the SW coastal footpath between Lundy Bay and Polzeath. Most of it is rideable, and the early morning dog walkers were friendly and nobody objected to me.
The drivers around there were dreadful, so I’d think twice about road riding.Posted 4 years ago
