Silverfish backed Cornish trail centre now open

The sun, sea and surf capital of the UK now boasts Cardinham Woods trail
Publish date:

A new trail centre in Cornwall has opened with backing from local bike distributor Silverfish.

Opened on May 8th, the new development at Cardinham Woods near Bodmin was opened to the public by Malcolm Bell, head of Visit Cornwall.

Constructed with funding from the Rural Development Programme for England through the South West 1 partnership, the new trails have already seen over 30,000 miles cycled on them, but thanks to support from Silverfish UK, who have come on board to support the trails maintenance, they will remain in top condition for visiting riders.

Pete Drew of Silverfish UK, said: “We’re very happy to see purpose-built off-road trails of this quality being built on our doorstep in Cornwall and are delighted to be able to sponsor a development of this nature. Having accessible trails available in the area is an amazing asset and we hope our involvement will ensure they remain for visitors for many years to come”.

The blue-graded (moderate) ‘Bodmin Beast’ is 12km of cycle trail, which aims to 'set the benchmark for singletrack' in Cornwall. Snaking turns and switchback descents will have riders smiling and working up an appetite ready for a visit to the onsite Woods Café. 

In addition riders will also find two red-grade trails (difficult) which loop off the main ‘Bodmin Beast’. 'Dialled-in Dave' is a natural fast flowing trail, which will help develop riders skills. There's also the steep climb and fast steep descent of ‘Hell’s Teeth’.
