The Route - Day one - Land's End to Perranporth

I managed to avoid the A30 almost entirely, apart from the necessary bits down to Land's End, then back out again. The coastal route is much more pleasant, has some great views, and the wind should be behind you (or a little to the side) It's not so hilly to start with, just a little rolling again. It's quite easy to pick your way round the coast towns, via St Just, St Ives and St Agnes. If you start earlier than I did, you can make it as far as Padstow.
