Stage 2 - Start Time 5.00pm

The Camel Trail (18 miles)
18 miles of mainly traffic free cycle way. The ride will start at St Breward, not far from Blisland; a pretty moorland village, complete with village green and pub. It winds its way coastward round the foot of Bodmin Moor, with its bogs, tors, commons and streams, then on to the beautifully wooded Camel valley where you will see mixed woodlands of ash, oak and beech. The route takes you through the busy town of Wadebridge.

Wadebridge boasts a medieval bridge, although now much altered, supposedly built on sacks of wool. The cyclists then hug the River Camel as it opens out into the spectacular Camel Estuary where you can see the village of Rock on the far side. This area is well known for its wildfowl such as grebe, and various waders and divers. As you cycle towards the attractive town of Padstow you will probably have thoughts of Rick Stein, the British Chef who specialises in fish and has his headquarters in the town, and possibly Padstow’s May Day celebrations. There is also Prideaux Place, a fabulous Elizabethan mansion.
