Eaton Ford (Nr. St. Neots) to: Higham Ferrers (Nr. Rushden)
Fairly well known biker road in this area. I often take the B660 from Bedford which joins this road in the middle. Its then a simple choice of left to Rushden or right to St. Neots, either way is billiant with roundabouts at each end to spin round and do the full stretch! The A6 or the A421 bring you back to Bedford too, making a splendid triangular run!! Watch out for the odd police car cos they often drive through the area. Especially on bright, sunny, Sunday afternoons. Loads of bikes about too, particularly flash Ducati's!
Bedford thru Higham Ferrers to: back to Bedford
Head north from Bedford on the A6, through Clapham (passing the Fox & Hounds, where the Fox MCC is based! Go here for more info: http://people.goplay.com/fox&hounds). Head up the A6 to Higham Ferrers (nice un fast) then do a right onto the B645 following the sign to St Neots (nice un bendy) then after going through Kimbolton look out for the B660 a way down on your right. This takes you back to Bedford with a huge grin on your face. COME TO THE FOX MCC !!!
Kimbolton to: Bedford
I am after some help from all you fellow bikers. I am working for the consultancy Babtie looking at the B660 road link from Kimbolton down to Bedford. There have been a fair few accidents along this route and I am looking to help reduce them. I am therefore after some feedback from those that ride the route on problem areas. Do you find that signage is inadequate or the condition of the road is unsatisfactory etc? What would you suggest we might do to improve riding conditions without spoiling the enjoyment factor of the bends and straights? I would appreciate any feedback in order for me to submit accurate set of recommendations and make the route more of a pleasure for you all. Thanks again Richard Walmsley Highway Engineer, email@example.com
Bedford to: Kimbolton
Just a plea to all you bikers out there. As a resident on this stretch of road, please PLEASE take note of the speed signs. We'd be very grateful if you could take extra care when entering Pertenhall from the south. We know it is very tempting to put your foot down (or whatever the bike term is) as soon as you come over the crossroads and round the corner but this lovely stretch of straight road is a very well marked 40mph zone and the houses along there have concealed entrances straight onto the road. We can't see you coming from our right, so you can't possibly see us pulling out on your left. Every time we leave the house, it's like running the gauntlet and one day someone is going to get hurt. Thank you for your consideration. It is a great road to travel on but please bear a thought for those of us who have to live on it.
