Brew stop there,then carry on through twisty bits to Hawes. Road gives good forward views.

A6108

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.


A161+A1077

Hessle to: Hessle

Starting at the Humber Bridge roundabout (Hessle) head east on the A63 (boring), at North Cave get onto the B1230 follow this to Howden and then get on the A614 through Goole. Go through the docks and take the A161 towards Swinefleet (I kid you not !). Now that's the boring bit over with, now comes the good bit. The A161 is a flat twisty road that runs along the bank of the river Ouse with only a few village's but plenty of visibility round the bends. Just after Crowle turn left onto the A18 towards Scunthorpe, just before Scunny turn left onto the A1077. Again this is an ace road with lots of twist'ies and sharp 90 degree bends. Watch out here as quite a few bikes end up in hedges due to being caught out. At South Ferriby there are some ace views over the Humber of the Bridge, at Barton turn on to the A15 and the bridge approach. Then once you have paid your toll (1) your home again.


A61

Ripon to: Hawes

Awesome. A61 stretch leading into Ripon bend after sweeping bend, perfectly cambered. Ripon to Masham fast and twisty. Masham to Middleton to Leyburn even more so. Leyland to Aysgarth to Hawes even better. This route is the next best thing to the TT circuit.
