Frequently asked questions...

Making a booking/reservation online


When ordering bikes, we ideally need the following information:


Gender of adults and height (aged 16 is considered an adult), ages and gender of children, whether you need any attachments (tagalongs, igo’s, childseats (16kg limit) or trailers. We would also need to know which bikes they would need to be attached to (e.g. One 5’8”  gent with a tagalong), and importantly your estimated time of arrival together with contactable mobile number. This way we can have everything ready for you when you arrive



Can we hire bikes for more than 1 day?


Of course! You can hire any of our bikes for more than 1 day, although a deposit will be required



How long would it take to cycle to Padstow from Wadebridge?


At a leisurely cycle approximately 45mins to an 1hr



Do we need to bring refreshments?


This will depend on where you go and for how long, although its always advisable to bring some water with you to drink. There are a number of places along or near the Camel Trail which sell refreshments in Wadebridge, Padstow, Dunmere, Bodmin & Blisland



Is the Camel Trail suitable for the disabled/infirm?


Yes it really is! Almost the entire length of the trail is flat and we have a variety of options available for the less able-bodied cyclist



What happens if I get a puncture, or something happens to the bike on the trail?


All our bikes are supplied with locks, helmets, pumps & puncture repair kits - any problems just call us



Can we just turn up or do we need to book?


Booking is advisable, especially during busy times like school holidays or the summer months. Please call us to check bike availability during busy periods as we can booked up quickly!



Does it cost anything to use the trail?


There is certainly no 'entrance fee' for using the Camel Trail as such, and you can join it at whatever point you wish. In fact, the Camel Trail is yet another of Cornwalls superb free visitor attractions. So, if you are walking, or using your own bicycle, then there is essentially no cost to you whatsoever. Ansum!



Are there any pubs or inns along the Camel Trail?


A very popular question! There are a number of public houses in Padstow, Wadebridge, Bodmin and in Blisland too. Although not all directly on the trail itself, most are easily accessible and there is the Borough Arms in Dunmere (Bodmin) that does lie next to the Camel Trail. This is a St Austell Brewery owned pub and serves a fine selection of Cornish ales.
