Sheepwash > Bodmin

  • 98.9 km

Delightful contrasts await on this section which uses country lanes to take in green fields, moorland and the dramatic North Cornish coast. The going is challenging beyond Bude, as the main route follows the line of Widemouth Bay, but you’ll be rewarded with some of the South West’s most beautiful views.
