We are a matter of yards from the Mineral Tramway Cycle Route, which runs from Devoran (on the south coast of Cornwall) to Portreath on the north coast. This cycle route comprises primarily off-road cycling terrain, mainly of 'made-up' tracks, with short lengths of road around Redruth. It's total length is around 17 miles.

Also just up the road is 'The Track', a purpose built cycling track designed for mountain bikes and BMXs with various humps, bumps and jumps.

Where to cycle

Idless Woods

Not so much a cycle route as such, but an area of woodland with various wide, marked trails to have some two-wheeled fun.
Distance: Approx 5km

Great Flat Lode

This is a fairly easy going route ideal for families and explores the area around the foot of Carn Brea, just to the south of Redruth. The terrain is a mixture of off-road and on with the off road tracks also varying in type.
Distance: approx 13km.

There are various places to start / park for this route all within a 15 - 20 minute drive from Rayle Farm Holiday Cottages.

The Camel Trail

Travel Time: Approx 45 Mins
Distance: 11 miles
Terrain: primarily off-road made-up tracks
The Camel Trail is one of Cornwall's best known cycle tracks and is very 'family friendly'. Without too many hills it follows the route of the Camel River from Wadebridge to Padstow making use of the disused railway routes.
Cycle hire is available at both ends of the trail.
