Andrew Bosanyi and Mark Waissner - South Australia

“We did the 4 day Cornish Tour and had a terrific experience.  The condition of the bikes was very good and the maps and directions were excellent.  While there was no shoulder on most paved roads, we found the Cornish drivers to be courteous and respectful of cyclists.  The countryside and vistas were like something out of a BBC period piece – quite beautiful.  The accommodations were charming local B&B’s or inns – just what we were looking for, but would have had a hard time arranging ourselves beforehand.  Cornish Cycle Tours did an excellent job coordinating the trip and their responsiveness was immediate, informative and accurate.”

Judith and Baden Sommerville - New Zealand

“Coming from New Zealand we were worried about the traffic but our four day cycle trip was incredible,  our trails were either free of cars or very few with good vision. The scenery was great and biking in April meant spring was in full bloom. We loved our accommodation and the bikes were very well maintained and very comfortable. We would highly recommend the experience to any foreign traveller as it gave you a real taste of Cornwall and England.”

“My husband and I, both senior citizens, had a wonderful time on the three day leisure cycling tour around Land’s End. We are both active but I was glad I had opted for the electric assist bike as the hills were longer and more plentiful than I expected. The tour was well organized. Lanyon Rowe was so helpful and the countryside was beautiful and varied. It was fun to ride right through the Poldark setting and then come home and start watching the series. We loved our accommodation especially in St Just and Mousehole.”

Peter and Heather Stark - Canada

“If you enjoy cycling and wish to experience one of England’s most magnificent coastlines then you must take a Cornish Cycle Tour.  Cornwall is spectacular and the cycling up and down the hills into the small fishing villages is rigorous and satisfying. Cornish beer, Cornish pasties, and the welcoming Cornish people add to the unforgettable experience. The logistics of bike fitting, route planning, and first rate accommodations are all taken care of seamlessly by your tour director, Lanyon Rowe. We highly recommend Cornish Cycle Tours.”

Pius and Regina Renggli - Switzerland

“We had a wonderful, well organised trip through Cornwall. Through small roads we discovered places that one would have problems reaching with a car. The 40-50 km per day in this hilly region were not easy, so my wife was happy to have an easy to handle electric bike. And I recovered well after arriving in the afternoon in a perfectly situated hotel and drinking a Cornish draft.”

“Perfect variety of sport, sightseeing, shopping and relaxing. The Cornish cycling tour made it possible to get to know the beautiful landscape of Cornwall. The cliffs, beaches and towns make the hilly cycling days worthwhile. The personal customer support made our tour even more enjoyable because we didn’t have to worry about anything. My mum and I had an unforgettable cycling week in Cornwall.”

“We cycled the West Cornwall Tour in August this year. We had a great week. The maps and information provided by Cornish Cycle Tours were clearly presented and invaluable during the tour. Accommodation was superb and there were plenty of places to eat along the way. Would highly recommend!”

Nele and Peter Schinzing - Germany

“Our bicycle tour this July was perfect from the beginning. The maps and tour descriptions provided were very helpful and full of useful details. The bikes were in excellent condition. Even as a minor fault occurred Lanyon was with us within an hour and fixed everything. Very nice accommodations with excellent food and drinks gave the appropriate frame for the days on tour. One of the best holidays we had in years.”

Anne and Edgar Furuholt - Norway

“We had a very nice tour in a beautiful and varied landscape. Some of the hills were steeper than we had expected, so we were glad that one of our bikes was electric. Lanyon was very helpful both when we planned our tour and with the practical arrangements at the start and end of the tour.”

Chester Arnold - USA

“We had a fantastic six-day cycle from Charlestown to Perranporth, clockwise around the coast.  Cornwall was both more beautiful and a little hillier than we expected, but the beauty was well worth the hills. Cornish Cycle Tours did a great job of routeing us primarily along narrow lanes and country roads.  The bikes were in excellent condition, and the small inns where we stayed were very welcoming and comfortable.  An awesome vacation!”

Owen and Carolyn Woyak - USA

“Everything about it was what we had hoped for.  The sites of Cornwall were spectacular, the accommodations were tops and the people we met were helpful and friendly.  The hills were a challenge so we were happy we could change to electric assist bikes after our second day.  We highly recommend these bikes for anyone who questions their ability to conquer the hills you will encounter… we are in our late 70’s and bike only for the pleasure of doing it, not to set any records!”

“Our five day tour was wonderful. Lanyon picked us up as promised at our end point and drove us to the start so we’d have the car handy at the end of our ride.

The routes were lovely – well planned and easy to follow – and we were given excellent maps too. As for the hills – well we got used to them and I feel very proud for having managed them all.”

“With electric assist and two batteries ‘on board’, it was much easier to climb the many hills in Cornwall.

Along with the wonderful care from Lanyon and the very helpful step-by-step description, you can enjoy the incredibly beautiful Cornish countryside a little more comfortably with an electric bike.”

“The landscape was fantastic with a lot of nice scenery, and varied with both coastal paths and inland greenery. Be prepared for hilly roads and narrow tracks, I would recommend the cyclist is fairly fit to enjoy the tour more. My husband and I were very satisfied with our accommodation and our rented bikes. We fell in love with the small towns as we passed.”

“We spent a beautiful summer’s week in Cornwall, it was a pleasant and exciting experience. The landscapes we saw, crossing the hills and plains are still in our hearts and maybe one day we will come back. We have good memories of the warm stay in the inns and the Cornish ales, it was wonderful.”

“Our itinerary was fantastic and perfectly organised.

We stayed at 11 wonderful places; really charming B&Bs and lovely inns and hotels. I couldn’t say which was best, because each was special and they were so different. The hosts were really friendly and very helpful. Thank you so much for the best holiday we’ve had for many years!”

“A cycle tour like this is an excellent opportunity to experience a country you don’t know. Even though we had rather mediocre weather conditions we have very good memories of our tour in August 2008. Mapping material and service were excellent and in difficulties (i.e missing the ferry at St. Mawes) Lanyon organised immediately a suitable solution. We really recommend Cornish Cycle Tours to anyone!”

“An excellent tour, well mapped out and organised, all you have to do is decide where to stop to eat or take photographs. The scenery is stunning and the route used roads which were cyclist friendly and saw very little traffic. Whichever option you take will give you a wonderful insight into Cornwall at your own pace and with plenty of optional places to visit.”

“Going on a Cornish Cycling Tour is a fantastic way to spend a long weekend. It was great being out in the fresh air and getting loads of exercise, while seeing the beautiful Cornish countryside, lovely little villages and breathtaking sea views. An added bonus is that the tour makes your trip hassle-free by organising your bikes, bag transfer and maps – all you have to do is turn up!”

Helen and Harald Ostheimer - Austria

“Starting in Wadebridge we cycled along the coastline and visited many nice villages such as Mousehole and St Ives. We were surprised by the sometimes hilly landscape, but starting every day with a fulll Cornish breakfast gave us the energy. The service of Cornish Cycle Tours was excellent; the bikes were in very good condition; the map with daily routes was very helpful; the accommodation was cosy; and our luggage was always at our room in time. And the weather was fine!”

“Our tour was designed to show us as much of Cornwall and Scilly as possible. Our wish was granted and we were introduced to some fantastic landscapes. We recommend the Scilly part of the trip to anyone who appreciates undisturbed nature and peace.

We were there for four days (including the journey) and found this an ideal and stress-free way to get our first impression of the islands.”

“We had a fantastic trip with Cornish Cycle Tours. Right from the start we knew it would be a superb experience –  we arrived at the station to be met by our phenomenally helpful guide, driven to our B&B and shown the tailor-made waterproof route maps for our three day tour of the stunning Cornish area. Throughout our guide was available to assist and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. All in all – a superb well organised trip in an idyllic part of the world.”

“Just have to say that our 6 day cycling tour of Cornwall will remain the highlight of our trip to England. Lanyon (Cornish Cycle Tours coordinator) is a very accommodating host, the bicycles, the route directions and maps made for a worry free adventure. The tour difficulty rating was accurate ,we found our tour to be both challenging and rewarding, so be honest with yourself when choosing your tour.

Cornwall is such a beautiful part of England, the fishing villages and old mining towns, rugged coastline, inns and pubs we could not have asked for more. Thanks again for the great memories.”

We had a wonderful two weeks on our holiday in Cornwall. We especially liked Lanyon Rowe with his perfectly designed route to our special wishes. We stayed for two days in some of the lovely accommodation, so we cycled in many picturesque coastal placesLanyon’s tour schedule took us through beautiful Cornwall areas. Conclusion: A fantastic cycling holiday! Thank you!”

Oh the scenery! Every hill & every drop of rain was worth it. Cornwall is so beautiful and cycling is a perfect way to see & feel it. Sure we walked our bikes at times but electric back up was not going to be part of our agenda. Wonderfully friendly & comfortable accommodation every night prepared us for another awe inspiring adventure the next day. Our trip was well organised & we knew that contact with Lanyon was just a call away. We spent 10 weeks touring the UK & our 7 day cycling Cornwall was the best part.”

We had the most memorable time on the Penwith tour of Cornwall in June 2016. There were 3 of us from Vancouver, Canada. We are recreational riders and found the tour to be stimulating and the countryside and towns were picturesque. All the arrangements were perfect as well as all the accommodation. Lanyon is efficient and friendly as are all his country folk. We came away with a host of memorable moments.”
