Cycle Sunday set to be annual event
Dozens of cyclists defied the threat of stormy weather at the weekend to pedal their way along Cornwall's Clay Trails.
The free Cycle Sunday event covered a three-and-a-half mile long route from Wheal Martyn to Knightor with the option of cycling an extra five miles and loop around the Eden Project.
The route was on the popular Clay Trails, which is a network of short walking, cycling and horse-riding trails through mid-Cornwall's China Clay Country. Some 60 cyclists and walkers gathered at Wheal Martyn before taking to the picturesque trails which weave past historical sites and working China Clay pits.
Heidi Morgan, Clay Trails' development officer, said: "It was a really enjoyable day with a great turnout. Everyone who took part was impressed by the beautiful views from the Clay Trails as well as having the chance to explore different destinations.
