For those considering a UK-long bike ride, this is the traditional start. The B3306 twists, climbs, turns and drops through the countryside with excellent visibility, although livestock can occasionally block the road. The dramatic countryside harbours old mines, ancient stone walls, outstanding rock formations amongst uneven fields, granite farmhouses, signs of the pagan lifestyle of witchcraft, ritual and folklore, and jutting cliffs with views of the Scilly Isles. From Land’s End, it’s 3 miles to St. Just, then through Trewellard, Pendeen, the tiny hamlet of Morvah, Gurnard’s Head, little Zennor with its own valley, and finally St.Ives. Beautiful.
