moved down to west cornwall a couple of years ago and struggling to find any decent singletrack with grin factor. some short sections of coast path ok. anybody know any good routes?


  • Go idless woods near Truro. You keep on finding more and more routes. Few jumps as well. Mostly single track though.

    There are some tracks around between Hayle & Penzance. Only ever done them on the Crosser, so it could be a fair bit of road work in between.

    Idless as already mentioned.

    Bissoe valley from St Day to Twelveheads is a common area for riders.

    I like Dunmere Woods near Bodmin (not sure about legality here).

    A few of us have looked at taking a trip to Plymouth. Apparently nr Plympton there is a track that takes 5 mins to get on to Dartmoor.

    There is a thread on the MTB rides section that a few Cornish riders have posted on. It might be worth arranging a meet.
