Cycling in the Cornish Sunshine

With the sunny weather in full force for the Easter bank holiday weekend I decided to make use of my new Christmas present that so far hasn't seen much use due to the consistently poor weather at the weekends and rather than start off my cycling lightly I decided that I wanted to cycle to the beach. 
St Columb Major
Leaving the house I headed around the back of St Columb Major and joined the back road to Mawgan Porth with the sun shining and the fields literally glistening in the spring sunshine being out on my bike with my music playing felt amazing. 8 miles later and rolling down the hill into the beach of St Mawgan felt amazing. Growing up in Essex and now living in Cornwall I still get excited and overwhelmed when I see the sea and getting to the beach via pedal power alone felt wonderful.

With a quick stop on the beach for a photo I then headed up the horribly steep hill away from Mawgan Porth heading onto the airport road home.

This is only my third cycle on my new bike that I got for Christmas and was very pleased when i got home to realise that I had clocked up a very presentable 16 mile cycle,
