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).
Penrith to: Alston
Do not belive the bit about no police, at a weekend the road crawls with the old bill,sneaking up on you and hidding around corners, and they ain't looking at the scenery. The road is a good un no doubt, but if you tire of it ,then keep on going onto the A689 from Alston to Brampton, not quite as good but well worth the ride with quite a few fast twisty bits, Halton Lea Gate has a 30 speed limit, apart from that it is yaahoo all the way.
Ingleton to: Hawes
'THE CHEESE RUN' from Gt Manchester take A59 west towards Gisburn from Preston side.Turn left at Gisburn A682 and head up to A65 for Settle.Through Setle up to Ingleton, beware Police, then turn right onto B6255 signposted 'White Scar Caves' go through village then out onto fast road which is mainly straight until you reach Ribblehead Viaduct. Brew stop there,then carry on through twisty bits to Hawes. Road gives good forward views. Get some Wensleydale cheese from the factory, then out on A684 and left onto A683 down to Devils Bridge for burger then home to wife saying you just nipped out to get some cheese!.
Stockport to: Stpckport
This is a nice hour ride on a big sports bike (may take considerably longer on anything else) First jump on M60 clokwise from Stockport TC (By the Pyramid) Jump off at next exit A34 Follow this new dual carrage way (lots of nice flip flop roundabouts to get you in the mood) Till the last roundabout Head left for Congleton (Still A34) Follow this untill just before Congleton (Fast and twisty) Then follow Macclesfield signs A536 (not so great surface and one or 2 corners which may catch you out, You have been warned) As you enter Macclesfiled Exit on the Sylk road for Leek A523(ignore the Cat & Fiddle, Too much Police) This road is amazing and well worth a long journey (Just watch out for 2 Cameras in a small 30mph Village!) When you get to Leek, follow signs for Buxton A54 (Also an amazing roller coaster of a road, no cameras, No problems!) From Buxton take the old road A5004 Long Hill into whalley Bridge and follow the traffic clogged A6 back to Stockport. Job Done!!!
