Leisure Cycle Tours

Choose a cycle tour that's right for you

Our Leisure Tours have been carefully created so that you have the freedom to see the sights of Cornwall at your own pace.

Whether you want to see Cornwall’s spectacular coastline, visit its historic landmarks, or indulge in its fantastic food and drink, we have the perfect cycle holiday for you.

We offer a choice of nine leisure cycle tours, which range from a long weekend to a two week break, cover a variety of difficulties, from the relaxed to the energetic, and explore different areas of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Find out more about each tour below.

At Cornish Cycle Tours, we arrange all of your accommodation, transfer your luggage, and provide you with detailed maps for each day. We’ll also be on hand to carry out bike repairs, should they be necessary – all you have to do is choose the holiday which is right for you.

Cycle hire – including electric bikes – can also be provided


To help choose a tour suitable to your ability level, we have graded the difficulty of our tours:

1: Easy – Either an easy, reasonably flat route or a route with very few miles each day. Suitable for people who do not cycle regularly and want some time to stop along the route.

2: Medium – More of a challenge but anybody with a reasonable level of fitness will cope with this. It is advisable that some training is done in advance.

3: Hard – These are tours for people who cycle on a regular basis. Quite a lot of miles each day make this a challenge for the occasional cyclist, but very enjoyable.

4: Hardest – For the serious cyclist only. With long distances and big hills these tours require a high level of fitness.
