Turn off the A10 at Buntingford on to B1038 - Although this route is peppered with villages there are some opportunities to go really fast in between. Sometimes a bit mucky but a good mixture of lefts and rights, up and downhill corners and straights. At Newport turn left briefly onto B1383 and then turn right onto B1052 (Saffron Walden) and follow this road all the way to Linton. This section has some great moments with some knee down opportunities and one bit which has some smooth and fast snaking with open view of the road ahead (getting through Saffron Walden can be tricky - TAKE SIGNS TO TOWN CENTRE PAST TWO MINI ROUNDABOUTS. WHEN YOU GET TO TRAFFIC LIGHTS AT TOWN CENTRE, TURN RIGHT AND THEN FOLLOW ROAD STRAIGHT ON). At Linton follow signs for Balsham. Once through Linton its a short run to Balsham which is the living shit if you like it fast,bumpy and safely tankslappy. Follow B1052 through Balsham (slowly, I know people who live there) and stay on the same road all the way to Newmarket where, at some point, it will have miraculously cahnged into the B1061. This section has better Tarmac than the previous roads and some lovely corners but it also boasts the only speed cameras I am aware of on this route.
A great road for experts and novices alike, but watch out for the latter if you are the former!!. A good selection of well sighted bends, sweepers, and a cracking flat out straight, but do watch for mud on the road as this means the local farmers are out and about. stop at the pub on the left as you complete the run and have an orange juice outside and wave to other bikers going the other way(back to uttoxetor) A super evening run in the summer...especially on a 600 bandit.
its got a mixture of long straights and sweeping bends,theres 1 part thats about 3/4mile long and dead straight by Monkhopton. why not visit my web site for more info and other recommended routes in that area www.geocities.com/phire_blade/superbikes.
