Brentwood to: Saffron Walden
Mobile cameras througout this area now. Watch your speed in the villages and on the side roads. Plod everywhere it seems as Essex are cracking down on us. Campaign to rid area of speeding bikes apparently.
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.
Crowland (NE of Peterborogh) to: Sandy
This route is approximatly 50 miles and makes a refreshing change to hacking up the A1. Sections of this road are very long and straight, other are not!! There is a little of somethng for everyone
Chelmsford to: Bishops Stortford
Was an excellent challenging road - better if you turn off at Hatfield Heath and go to Sawbridgeworth rather than Stortford. A couple of 40 limits have recently been added to mar the fun.
