Families are in for a free and fun-packed day out on September 13 when three great Cornish attractions link up for Cycle Clay Sunday.

The route starts at Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum and Country Park and takes in Knightor Winery at Trethurgy and the perimeter of the Eden Project at Bodelva.

Knightor Winery and the Clay Trails Partnership have teamed up with Sustrans to bring everyone this day out along one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets – the Clay Trails. 

Families can cycle, walk or even run the family-friendly route while enjoying the sights and sounds of the historical paths.

Those looking for that extra challenge can complete the full 12-mile round trip and set a personal best.

For those who do not fancy the full route, there are plenty of places to join in or stop off at along the way.

Free parking is available all day at Wheal Martyn and refreshments will be available to buy at the start. Cyclists will be making their way along the route from 10 am.

At Knightor, children’s entertainment includes a bike generator that can charge a phone or run a bubble machine.

Other highlights include entry into a free prize draw, a dinosaur treasure hunt for children and the chance to try out a bike which makes smoothies through pedal power.

From 12 pm, food and drink will be available to purchase including a Sunday roast, and hot filled rolls.
