Littleport to: Mildenhall
From the roundabout on the A10, turn onto the A1101. Then open it up and see what happens. Like an airport runway for about 4 miles, only one junction to watch for, no hazards. Nothing through the post so I presume no cameras. Remember to slow up for the bend and railway crossing, then have another go for another 3 miles. This will not appeal to knee-down fanatics but will allow you to test the alleged warp-speed potential of your Hayabusa.
Edinburgh to: A1 Junction
Approx 150 yes 150 miles of every situation you can think of, from Dual carriageway to sweeping curves, tight bends, blind summits the lot. I used to do this twice a weekend, Friday and Sunday. (commuting 368 miles to work in Stevenage) Couldn't wait to get off the A1. Just try some of it if it's too long......
A17 to: top of Bayards Leap.
Take A17 from A1 towards Sleaford. This road used to pass through Leadenham, up Bayards Leap and then past RAF Cranwell. If you take a left turn just before the A17 Extension ( Bayards Leap Bypass)which is a 3 lane road, you will work through Leadenham village and arrive at a set of Traffic Lights. Go Straight On. This will take you up the original Bayards Leap, a very steep hill with tightening bends before and during. Turn left at the top to put you back onto the A17 Sleaford Rd. About 2 miles further on is the Bayards Leap Cafe on the right, a perfect place for a cuppa before you either continue towards the coast or turn back and do Bayards all over again in the opposite direction. Its well worth doing Bayards a good few times in one day to get the best out of it. I always do the original Bayards Leap whenever I'm out that way and usually do it two or three times in each direction.
