Cycling & Segways
Getting around Newquay by bicycle has improved this year with the brand new off road cycle & pedestrian track over the Barrowfields.
This is in addition to the off road ‘Tram Track’ cycle route and a cycle path down Manor Road. This does mean you can navigate through the main centre of Newquay on either off road cycle tracks or marked roadway cycle paths.
There are several places where you can hire bicycles in Newquay during the Summer, including Newquay Hire Shop
Porth Reservoir and the Camel Trail
One of the most popular way of enjoying cycling are the totally off road options. One option is the long route around Porth reservoir which is about 2 miles out of Newquay.
Another very popular option is the Camel Trail. This starts just outside Padstow and was once a tramway but now is purely a cycling and walking path. One bicycle hire company, Bridge Bike Hire, is based there and you can hire various types of bikes including even trikes, tandems and ‘tag alongs’ for smaller children. They also have child seat, buggy and dog trailer addons available. The complete route itself extends from Padstow, through Wadebridge finishing at Wenford Bridge. The whole route takes in sea, river and rural views and really makes cycling a pleasure.
There are also a number of similar cycling and walking trails around Cornwall as part of the Cornish Way. Many are also completely off road and Visit Newquay Tourist Information stocks the' Cornish Way Cycling and Walking Guide' booklet that comprises of a set of individual trail maps.
