A7

Galashiels to: Edinburgh

Lots of tight bends, lots of sweeping corners, lots of straights which guarantees you can pass the caravan club member of the year. I had great fun travelling this route. No speed cameras on this section (that I can recall) and the road surface is pretty good all round with the the high grip surface on the tight corners.

Better still is if you travel south on this route, join the A68 a few miles East of Melrose and head south towards Cambo. If you're not crazy you can have great fun through the borders but beware of the speed cameras. There are no speed cameras once you get into England but be cautious of the blind summits, there have been fatalities on this road at some of these points (no motorcycles that I've heard of). Other than that champion.

Still more fun if you turn off the A68 onto the A696 taking the exit for Otterburn, take it slow through Otterburn then let rip to Morpeth.


B6318

Gilsland to: Langholm

This is pure pain and pleasure to ride, there is everything from hairpin bends,hump backs to short fast bursts of speed to cool the brakes off, but beware you will soon be hard on them again! Ride this road as fast as you dare then turn round and do it again. Watch out for a 350 degree bend about 1 mile after the welcome to Scotland sign.


A259

POLEGATE to: HASTINGS

The bypass from Polegate to Pevensey is now open. It is a balls out racer road with NO Junctions entering into or on it. From the Polegate Roundabout (A22) TURN towards STONE CROSS (hope it aint an omen) and towards Eastbourne (A259.) Cane your baby for about two miles until the roundabout then straight across towards Bexhill/Hastings. This is a balls out fast road. You will love it....BUT BEWARE...........A BLACK 3 SERIES BMW police CAR WITH LAST PART INDEX OF PTW, OR PTM.....ALL CAMERA'D UP...IF IT GETS YAH..JUST GO FOR IT....ALSO THEY have slow volvo t'5 all marked up and visible...ps..no speed camera's.........best time to enjoy the road sunday mornings...no police until middayish if at all!!!


B6255

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!.
