Falmouth to Truro

From Ponsharden follow the roadside cycle lanes to Penryn.


Turn right up the steep 'Truro Hill' and follow the map until you re-join the A39.

Turn left with caution and take the first right up into Perranwell. After the station (Perranwell) take Route 3 (see map below) for the traffic free route to Devoran and follow the river to Penpol before climbing the hill to the B3289 King Harry Ferry turning, go straight past this and head towards Truro.

Follow route 3 to Calenick, turn right up Old Falmouth Road before turning right onto the former railway line, now the Newham Trail, which will take you into the heart of Truro.
