Destination Cornwall

Mountain Biking in Cornwall doesn’t get any better than the Bissoe Valley.  This area has a long history in the mining industry, providing disused quarries and tram ways.  It gives mountain bikers a natural trail experience, which is exhilarating and satisfying. Cornwall has some fantastic riding with breath taking scenery and we have rides to suit all abilities.
