From Padstow it follows an old railway track with the lowest section between Wadebrige and Padstow being almost level. The sections from Wadebridge to Bodmin are on a quieter track, with the last section from Bodmin to Pooley Bridge following the Camel River through woodland glades.
The lowest section is often done from Wadebridge, where bikes can be hired to Padstow. It takes less than an hour and the cycle shops provide chains and lock so that you can leave your bikes against the railings in Padstow and have a wander around the town. At Padstow you could visit the The National Lobster Hatchery and see the work they are doing to help conserve the local Lobster population.
If you have your own bikes it is nicer to stop at Borough Arms, on the Wadebridge road out of Bodmin. You then have the coice of 10 miles down the track past Wadebrige and on into Padstow, or seven miles up the track past bodmin towards Pooley Bridge. This gives you the chance to end you ride with a drink and a meal in the Pub.
There is also carparks in Bodmin (by the Gaol) and at Pooley Bridge that are used by cyclysts.
