Bodmin Beast cycle trail (Cornish: Best Bosvena)

The Bodmin Beast cycle trail might just be the best singletrack trail in Cornwall. This exciting route explores the wooded slopes of the Cardinham Valley.

You will encounter a number of technical climbs and descents, snaking single track trail, and features such as tight bermed corners, small step downs, rollers, and table tops. All features can be rolled over at a moderate speed. The trail is exposed to steep unfenced side slopes in places.

There are also two sections of difficult red grade trail, which loop off of the main Bodmin Beast.

Helmets must always be worn while riding. Read more about how we grade cycle trails.
