Cycling (with small children)

Hi

We are booked to stay at the parkdean mullion holiday park in October half term. I was hoping it would be worth bringing the bikes and doing some cycling. The children are 8 and 5 so would prefer routes away from main roads.

We have nt & eh memberships so are planning to go and visit quite a few places, so the cycle trails don't necessarily need to be nr mullion.

Any other tips would be welcome, as we are just using the park as a base rather than wanting to spend too much time there.

Many thanks

Hello! The only actual cycle trails that I can think of are the Camel Trail (Padstow to Bodmin) and the coast to coast trail (Portreath to Devoran) Both are flattish and very popular with families. On the Lizard Peninsular there are lots of quiet lanes, but even these will have some traffic, and you will have to go on busy roads at least for a short distance to get to tfe lanes.

The Pentewan valley trail between St Austell and Mevagissey and Heligan gardens is very popular with families. Much of it level.

You can also cycle from Newlyn to Marazion, with only a couple of on road bits.
