Thirsk to: Thirsk
Leave Thirsk on A168 to Northallerton. Watch this stretch as it's close to Kirby Wiske where the Police headquarters are.....abundance of Hedge Twitchers in Volvo's..etc, etc. Go straight thru Northallerton high street over level crossing and turn left at the mini roundabout onto the B6271. Enjoy sweeping bends as you pass thru Yafforth, Great Langton and Ellerton on way to Richmond. Go thru Richmond on the A6108 towards Leyburn. Some sharp bends here, but good scenery again. Thru Leyburn and stay on the A6108 thru Middleham, East Witton, Masham and into Ripon. Exercise some caution on this Leyburn/Ripon stretch as they regularly dowse the road in that bloody awful and downright dangerous gravel covering on tar....Loose chippings on some corners. Upon reaching Ripon, turn left on A61 to Thirsk for a quick blat home.
KIRKBY STEPHEN to: KIRKBY LONSDALE
Left Carnforth Lancs,on our Honda CBR1000FM. Went north on the A6 to Kendal then on to the A685 to Tebay. Then went right at the roudabout to Kirkby Stephen on the A685,for about 4 miles there's a good fast road. Befor you get to Kirkby, over ash fell,take the first turne on the right the A683 awates you, it's a nice road lots of bends up & downs
Market Harborough to: Melton Mowbray
There are a few ways of getting to this road. I find the easiest way is to go along the A6 past Market Harborough and follow the sign for East Langdon/Melton Mowbray. There are a few little villages to go through, however the route is very twisty and you certainly have to be on your toes. Only travelled it 3 times but well worth do on a weekly basis, and no cameras or police (so far.)
