About your accommodation: The Old Quay House, Hayle.
A superb historic waterside free house standing in large grounds at the head of the Hayle Tidal Estuary midway between the town of Hayle and the village of Lelant. The Old Quay House has retained charm, heavy beamed ceilings, slate floors, subtle lighting and comfortable furniture. There is a large lawned area with views over the estuary with lots of seating for al-fresco dining and relaxing.

Hayle to St Just - 28 miles (46 km)
From the estuary at Hayle (a renowned habitat for wading birds), you cycle from the north to the south coast of Cornwall at the county's narrowest point. Meeting the sea at St Michael's Mount, there is an easy, level ride around Mount's Bay to Penzance and neighbouring Newlyn. Both towns have large harbours and big fishing fleets, so there is always plenty going on here. It's also an ideal place for lunch.
