Poldark to Porthcurno

January 5, 2022 by thstudio in RideOn Routes

A beautiful adventure from Land’s End to Porthcurno, this tour encompasses the wildness of Cornwall with spectacular sights.

If you’re feeling super fit and energetic, you can cycle to Land’s End from our Ride-On e-bike hire shop in Penzance. Our National Treasure route allows you to take in the stunning coastal scenery and Cornish countryside.

From Land’s End, you’ll set off, with your back braced against the Atlantic Ocean, and push your Super73 onwards towards the picturesque hamlet of Porthgwarra. This stunning fishing village was used as a location for the incredibly popular Poldark TV series and is worthy of a visit. If you’re lucky, the resident seal colony will make an appearance, and you can also forage for some samphire, wild garlic, and sloes on the foreshore.

Push off again to Porthcurno and enjoy its secluded white sand and aquamarine seas. Once you’ve dipped your toes in the brine, dry off and head up the hill to the Minack Theatre—a stunning open air theatre and a true testimony to the determination of the human spirit. If you’ve packed a lunch or hamper for your trip, now would be a good time to stop, refuel, and relax before heading back to Penzance. Or, if you’ve pre-booked a destination location pick up, wait for one of the RideOn team to collect you!
