Bike Smart Cycle Hire

The Camel Trail can easily be broken down into different stages if you don't fancy cycling the whole length of the trail. The trail is also a great place to take young children too, as it allows them to become more confident cyclists within this traffic free environment. The name 'Camel' actually derives from the Cornish language for 'the crooked one'.which is basically a reference to its winding course. Almost all of the route is traffic free - only a small part of the trail through Wadebridge is actually on roads and shared with normal traffic and it is suitable for walkers, cyclists and even horse riders.

The reason for it being flat is to do with it's original use being designed as a rail track for distributing sand inland, therefore it needed to be free of sharp turns and steep inclines (the trail was originally commissioned by Sir William Molesworth in 1831).
