COAST TO COAST

Discover Cornwall’s most famous Coast to Coast on this recommended Go eBike cycle Trail. 

Starting at Gwithian on the north coast of Cornwall the moderate 40-mile round trip will first take you to neighbouring fishing village Portreath. Your ride will then head inland following the ‘Mineral Tramway Network’, very popular with families with the majority of trails on purpose-built cycle paths. Immerse yourself amongst Cornwall’s rich heritage, making sure you stop at one of many famous Engine Houses.

Opened in 1812 the tramroad linked the historical copper mines of St Day and Scorrier to the ports of Portreath and Devoran. At which time this area in Cornwall was the richest for copper in the world. With just 11 miles to Devoran on the south cost, this is also one of the shortest coast to coast trails in the country. Enjoy a cold refreshment and tasty lunch in the spacious beer garden at the Old Key Inn before returning on the same route.
