Dorking to: Newlands Courner
A good blast from Box Hill on a summers evening. Not as crowded as Box Hill, with some good views of the downs. If you make it a Wednesday evening in the summer, why not ride on to the Black swan (mucky duck) at Ockham, near Effingham Junction Station. Loads of bikes, music inside if you want it, and a large carpark.
Caersws to: Circular route via Aberystwyth
Seeing is believing, this route must be the ultimate bikers dream, It will test your skills to the limit. (watch out for the sheep)
Starting at Caersws, head south towards Llanidloes (avoid the town via the bypass) and take the A44 at Llangurig for Aberystwyth, This part of the trip will take your breath away. After your break at Aberystwyth beach head for Machynlleth on the A487. At Machynlleth turn right at the town clock onto the A489, then a right turn at Cemmaes Road rejoining the A470 back to Caersws.
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!
Kibworth to: Uppingham & Back
Start at the Rose & Crown Pub in Kibworth Harcourt, point your bike towards Market Harborough and take the first left (200yds) end of the road go left then first right. Nice country road, twisty and fast, watch out for tractors and horses! Follow road to the end then go left towards Melton Mowbray. Faster country road with nice surface. 4 Miles turn right on the A47 towards Uppingham. Head down here and ride like the possesed. First roundabout is about 10 miles along A47, turn right towards Uppingham, failure to get knee burnt here results in an instant failure!! Take your time through Uppingham, lots of pedestrians, and for some reason they like to jump out in front of you! Straight through the lights, down the hill, private school area, take your time, when you reach the top of the other side GLF. Plenty of bends, nice road surface, great view of Eyebrook Res'r. Head towards Corby. Watch out for the traffice lights over narrow bridge, easy to miss as the adrenalin is still pumping. After the lights is the mad mile (you will know when you see it) dead straight and top speed here was 150 (so I heard). Slow throught Rockingham and head towards Market Harborough. The Roundabout before Harborough gives you the option of mad bypass speed or show of the bike throught Market Harborough, looking in the shop window and thinking wow I look good. A6 towards Kibworth and hey presto your back where you started from with a stupid smile on your face.... I ride the CBR600F.... Nice for the journey
