eBike Hire cycle route around the villages of Gwithian and Godrevy

GWITHIAN LOOP

Discover Gwithian, the crown in the bay of St Ives on this recommended Go eBike cycle trail. 

The Mellow 6-mile eBike route takes you along the charming coastal road towards Godrevy Lighthouse. Built in 1859 the lighthouse still actively warning ships from the dangerous offshore reefs. Just a few pedals around the headland you can find Mutton Cove, the home of a large grey seal colony that can been seen playing in the surf year-round. When you’re ready to return be sure to stop at the traditional Red River Inn where you can enjoy a traditional lunch whilst watching the waves roll by.
