Tour Description

Take a leisurely cycle ride along the quiet section of the Camel Trail to Wenfordbridge, where you can enjoy a delicious cream tea at the Snails Pace Cafe.

This scenic route takes you through some of Cornwall's most beautiful countryside, and you'll have plenty of opportunities to stop and take in the views.

Once you reach Wenfordbridge, head to the cafe and indulge in a traditional Cornish cream tea, complete with freshly baked scones, clotted cream, and jam.

It's the perfect way to relax and refuel after your cycle ride.

From Wenfordbridge, take a scenic cycle ride back over a beautiful medieval bridge and through some lovely woodlands until you reach Boscarne Junction. Here, you can catch the Bodmin and Wenford Steam railway back to Bodmin town.

Once you arrive, it's just a short five-minute cycle ride back to the base where you started.

This is a great way to see some of Cornwall's beautiful countryside and experience the fun of riding on a steam train. Don't forget to take in the views and enjoy the fresh air along the way!
