"Lovely day cycling from Bodmin to Padstow. My wife and I hired two bikes from here, and followed the Camel Trail to Padstow. The section from Bodmin to Wadebridge is quiet and peaceful. The section from Wadebridge to Padstow was pretty busy, and I would think a bit too much in high season. Nevertheless, well worth doing." - TripAdvisor
