One of the best roads Ive ever ridden in the UK. Technical, twisting everywhere, amidst stunning views. And once your on it you wont want it to stop. Again not for folks who like to go fast in a straight line.

a great road not really fast but technical there are some bits which could catch you out if your really going for it but if you back off a bit its still great fun and views aren't bad if you just want to cruise

Super tight and twisty with great undulations. V technical and not all about speed.

Recommend to anyone to stop at the Tinners Arms in the tiny village of Zennor. Great pub, great beers and excellent food 5-stars

Rode this last week in glorious sunshine, what a belter! Not the best for out and out scratching, but for taking it leisurely and enjoying the views, its up there with the best.

A little cracker! Take a break at the lighthouse for great cliff top views.

Nice road we road it last with www.southwestbikers.com we rode it in november 2004. It was wet but the road seemed to have lots of grip. The road will be busy in the summer but well worth the ride.

B3306 St Ives - Lands End: A good scratching route for an RGV 250 or equally pleasant for gentle touring. Between St Ives and St Just there are some particularly nasty bits that can catch you out so have a couple of sighting runs before giving it any stick. Avoid in the summer as it's full of tourists including coaches. Best on a nice spring morning. I live on the B3306 and have been been riding it for the last 20 years. This route is mentioned in the MCN guide to best biking routes. Remember "Watch out for suicidal guinea fowl at Porthmeor Farm"?

I think the route marked on the map could be wrong, take the coastal road, single track, fantastic scenery best done out of season (too many "emmitt" coaches otherwise). Think it was mentioned by one of the bike magazines as being a best road. Not for superfast straight liners!!

Very twisty, tight and quite techincal in places. Very picturesque, can be some tourist traffic, but usually not too bad.
