"Then you are on to the North Coast, where Surfing rules the waves. After a day cycling through tiny villages with thatched roofed houses, peppered with reminders of the silver mining industry that flourished in the area, you reach the thumping north coast, where waves pound the shore and surfers take to the water to conquer them. With the surf comes a laid-back vibe to Newquay and a town filled with great little places to eat and drink."
