If you like the A1071 a corker from start to finish, be sure to check out the Hadleigh to Whatfield road. Turn of the A1071 half way around the Hadleigh bypass. First you come up a snaking s hill and then you get two good pegging it down opportunities followed by a short straight and then another couple of good corners.Go through Whatfield branch of to the right nearing the end of the village. Even though this is a by road it has several tight corners and short straights. Best at the start of the year when the crops are low.
Turn off the A12 onto to B1119 towards Framlingham. This is a very twisty road with lots of tight corners to start with and opening up a little (getting faster) towards Framlingham. From Fram take the B1116 towards Dennington. Beware of the sharp 90 degree bends but enjoy the hump back bridge ! At Dennington go straight accross the staggered junction (over the A1120 - also a good road) and continue on the B1116 this section is a little bumpy for bikes of a nervous disposition. After 3-4 miles turn right towards Halesworth on the B1117. This road is great fun, especially the section around Heveningham Hall. The villages around here will make you think your bike is a time machine but beware of tractors, horses and various crap on the road, some of the junctions can be a bit gravelly. Halesworth is a bit dull so just pass straight through and make your way to the A12 at Blythburgh. Turn south and then Turn left immediatly after the White Hart pub (B1125). Follow this road all the way down to Leiston. From here you can either turn left towards Saxmundham and back to where you started or pass through and go to Thorpeness and its Biker friendly tea shops. Alternatively head further south past Snape Maltings and have some fun on the roads around Tunstall and Rendlesham Forests. Be warned, all the villages in Suffolk have 30mph limits and lots of places for the Police to hide, so knock it off when passing through.
Lengths of this road have just been resurfaced with some of the best tarmac I have ever had the pleasure to ride upon. Great corners experimenting with grip on the race trackish surfacing.
