I love the Cremyll ferry. It is the quickest way into Cornwall and takes you from Admirals hard to Cremyll in less than 8 minutes. They take foot passengers and bikes and in the summer months they often finish after the sun has already set.

The hills of this area are a tough cycle but you are rewarded by the stunning scenery of the south east Cornish peninsula at the top of virtually every ascent. Once I had got to Looe I felt I had done some exercise, so on the way back I took it relatively easy and stopped along the way to take photos along the coastal roads. I’m still not used to being locked into the bike, this resulted in a very comedic fall onto my side just before I started taking any of the photos below.

To try and save weight on the 60km cycle I took only two lenses a 35 mm f2.8 (which is the lightest lens I own) and an 85mm f1.8.  Next time I hope to get a few more shots of the actual cycle including cycle bars etc. I am trying to do more panels which work together and have a consistent tonal range of colours.

As always, feel free to comment below with any suggestions / alterations.

  1. A lovely set of pictures. I can’t say I would join you on the bike though but good for you.

  2. Thanks Andrew! You should come out on the bike and join me next time, its only a short ride to Cremyll from yours! The hills are a killer though, start small with a cycle to Cawsand and Rame head!
