Discover St Ives Bay’s famous town and blue flag beaches on this recommended Go eBike cycle Trail.
St Ives bay is a crescent shaped 6 mile stretch of golden sand and blue flag beaches. The mellow challenge, 18-mile round trip starts at Gwithian, the northern most beach within St Ives Bay. Passing through Hayle Estuary Nature Reserve, why not stop at Phillps and pick up a Cornish Pasty for your journey. Ride down into Carbis Bay, recently chosen to host the ‘G7 Summit’, and enjoy a dip in the warm blue ocean. When you’re ready to set-off rest assured your eBike will make light work of the steep hill. Arriving in St Ives, avoiding the stress of car parks, park up your eBike and browse the local shops of St Ives. If art and culture is your thing then ride over to the famous Tate Gallery and Barbra Hepworth museum.
