Glendalough, Wicklow Co.Wicklow Ireland to: End of Wicklow Mountaoin Range
If your over in Ireland head out of the Dublin City towards Wexford, N11 and take the well sign posted routes to Glendalough ( the road is crap but it worth it when you gewt there) on arrivig at the village follow the road out to the lakes (very well sign posted) and about 1 mile out there is a right turn to a road called wicklow gap. The Wicklow Gap is a 22 mile road set in the beautiful Wicklow mountains and is fairly traffic free, it consists of brilliant straights hair pin turns and best of all there is little or no traffic. Check it out - If any of you out there have toured Scotland I certainly appreciate some advice on good routes cheers Neil

Spalding to: Melton Mowbray
I got the following email on this site from a local - take note.(Ed)
Have read your page with great interest. Just would like to suggest a couple of alterations to your A515/B676 from Spalding to Melton Mowbray. As a local resident in the latter part of the route (Colsterworth to Melton Mowbray) can I just highlight a few things for you to add or not however you judge best.
1. Buckminster to Coston road in poor condition on some corners and these corners are deceptive, most 90 degrees, and there have been several serious accidents and heaps of holes in the hedges and one fatally (father of two) at one corner.
Rotherham to: Louth
This is a MUST for scratchers going to Cadwell Park! It can be split into Four sections Section1 Rotherham-Gainsbrough, not much bar a couple of staights and some twisty around Bawtry. Section 2 Gainsbrough to Caedby Corner, Flat out along Gainsbrough tops into some ace sections of knee abuse, watch the villages though. Good cafe at Caenby Corner ( not the little Chef) Section 3 Caenby Corner to Ludford Magna, this is the best section, many flat out sections and bum wrenching curves, go mad here, but ignore the ponces who insist on going fast and then riding back and watching others doing the same section.Good bikerscafe in Willingham woods picnic area, many bikes at a weekend. Best corner? ...Mmmm... it has to be the section known locally as Post office Corner Section 4 Ludford to Louth, Fast section, no cameras(as yet)feel the bike getting light as you crest those Lincolnshire Wolds! Go and have yourself a REAL good shakedown, Fondest regards and congratulations on a fine website Hubert.
