Huge variety - lots of sweeps, mixed surfaces. Watch out for plods in the villages. Watch out for 30mph camera on way into Billingshurst if coming from North. Road sweeps east from B,hurst through a small village. Crap until then. Once out of village, follow twisties through the forest on a great surface. Twisties for around 7 miles including a real bastard right hander. Last mile and a half before Petworth is totally straight. Time to see if the bike will do 60mph (honest officer). Go through Petworth slowly (there's no way you can do it quickly!!) Once out on the 252 again there's a long sweeping wide road where you can really pan it. Watch out for nasty twists in Cowdray Park.....it looks flat but the contours can throw you wide. More of the same until Petersfield. Usual Surrey rules apply.....30 thru the towns (or get 'plodded') and watch out for crap on the roads. Get to Petersfield. Get a drink. Grin a lot.
Long winding road, passing beautiful countryside, and plenty of pubs en-route! Best taken in summer, probably a pig of a road in the wet. Commonly used as a route by bike runs, such as thee May Day Run. Hastings is a mecca for motorcycle fans and in good weather you'll always find plenty of bikers from Hog Clubs to Race Freaks.
So, here's the route - to be performed early on a Sunday morning. Get on the A23 going south. Go through Redhill and down on to Crawley. Go round the Crawley GP circuit (2 - starts at Gatwick, 150mph+ speed all the way now, until number 8). This turns into the M23, follow this and go back to the A23.
Hammer on down the A23 to the Haywards Heath exit, and turn right onto the A272 (towards Cowfold). Carry on until you get to the A24. When you get to the A24, head south (towards Worthing) until you get to the Washington Roundabout(A283). Turn right towards Storrington. At Storrington, you reach an Esso garage. At the Esso, turn left onto the B2139 towards Amberley and Houghton. This is a long country road, with three whoops fairly well spaced out. One of them you have to be careful on, but we never remember which one. I think it's the second, nasty right afterwards! Take it a bit easier down this road the first time, there's a couple of nasty surprises. At the end of the B2139, you've got Arundel Castle on your left (can't see it though). There's a tea caravan here, but it doesn't open until 9 in the morning - wait until Rykers. Turn right onto the A29 (heading north). A29 all the way to the A24, look out for the GATSO at Billingshurst. It's pointing the other way (at least it normally is), so do wheelies at high speed. A24 towards Dorking, watch out for loads of GATSOs (and hairdryers in the silly season), and on to Box Hill. Stop at Rykers for a Bacon roll and clean out your undies.
