Inglton to: Hawes
Watch out in this area for a Silver unmarked Subaru Impreza turbo, it looks normal until... They seem to enjoy baiting bikers into a chase! You have been warned!
Weymouth to: Bridport
WATCH OUT ALONG THE B3157 GUYS I aint no motorbiker, just a driver (205 GTi) but there have been speed cameras along this route the past couple of days... On In Burton Bradstock as you come out of the Narrow bit in the Rd, Just Past the Anchor (ITS 30mph!!) Just as you hit the 3rd Bump, the nasy Git, they plonk one just there, on in Portesham just hafter the left hand bend past the pub... ALSO WATCH OUT ON THE DECENT TO WEST BAY PAST THE FRESHWATER TURNING AS THERE IS THE NEW GOLF CLUB ENTERANCE, AND A BIKER DIED THERE IN THE SOME AS SOME OLD GOLFING FART PULLED OUT TAKE NOTE GUYS, BE SAFE.... HIVE BEACH IN BURTON BRADSTOCK IS A GOOD CHILLED HANG OUT NOW, AS YOU HAVE TO PAY TO PARK YOUR BIKE IN WEST BAY...EVEN IF YOU WANT THE KIOSKS....
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!
Crediton to: Crediton (Devon)
Tyre squaring off??? Use this long afternoon route to grind it back! A3072 from Crediton to Tiverton joining the A396 after Cadbury and a steep decent. Now it's A396 heaven all the way to Dunster on the north coast, barely a momoent with the bike upright. This road is total star quality for views and corners... the only draw back is a very coarse and broken road texture under many of the wooded sections. At Dunster, resist the temptation to turn 180 and ride it back to Tiverton, instead turn West on the A39 for Porlock and its infamous Hill. Road surface is now good and the trip over the top of Exmoor with the sea to your right is a total blast ***watch for dozey drivers exiting picnic areas at 3MPH*** Masses of twisty bits and a tough climb out of Lynton is good value.. More fine corners on the run into Barnstable where things get rather less fun. Avoid the A361 route back to Tiverton as it is the most boring blast ever and popular with the local constabulary.. instead chose The A377, or if you are still craving speedy twists then the the tedious A39 stretch to Bideford leads on to the A386 to Great Torrington and a simple cut back to Crediton Via the A3072. Both the 377 & 386 follow rivers and so include some interesting corners and views.. Loads of traffic at peak season.. mid week in May or September is your best bet. ENJOY.
