A7

Gorebridge to: Carlisle

This road is great because there are very few long straights and it isn't policed as heavily as the A68. (Fewer accidents).


B1257

Stamford Bridge (Yorks) to: Helmsley

From A166 York to Bridlington road head east towards Stamford Bridge. Either 1/2 mile before S/B or 1.5 miles afterwards, take the unclassified road off left to Buttercrambe. Quaint village.. Head North out of Buttercrambe following signs for Malton. You now embark on a cracking 9 mile run up t'hill and down t'dale as the road repeatedly climbs to a crest and then you see it drop away for 2 miles in front of you. Lovely bends and visibility miles ahead.. Watch out for the odd blind crest with a mini crossroads just over the brow.. It may be only 9 miles but you can do what I do and turn around at Malton and do it all again...luurvely. Once into Malton / Norton, follow signs for B1257 Helmsley and have fun on this seldom monitored 'blatter'. Stop off in Helmsley for 'tea & stickies' before heading home or going onward.


A170

Helmsley to: Scarborough

Helmsley is a market town lying on the A170 from Thirsk to Scarborough. The road is mostly 60 limit, quiet and predominantly plod free, road surface is smooth and sticky. Plenty glorious fast sweepers and good straights. Great scenery (if you get time to look). Not too many villages along the way so fairly hazard free. Helmsley market place is a locally renowned gathering point for all walks of biker on summer weekends (mainly sunday afternoons) and theres always loads of bikes on the Scarborough sea front at the other end of the journey. Plenty alternative routes if you fancy a change on the way back. That corner of North Yorkshire is packed with good biking roads other than this, explore!
