Route Filmstrip & Description

A challenging route for large scooters and experienced riders. I would recommend doing it with able-bodied person. A varied route with spectacular views of the coast and the peaceful Bude Canal. Some of the terrain is even, steep and there are gates. If you are interested in oter rambling in Cornwall why not visit http://www.cornwallrr.org.uk. there is also a much easier route along the canal and a tramper of road mobility scooter can be hired at http://www.whalesborough.co.uk/north-cornwall-restaurants.html.
