A30 Nr Staines to: Staines Lap
A30 / M25 Junction. Anyone attempting 90 MPH around the A30 M25 Junction is going to get thmeselves killed, it is suicide. the junction is extremly busy and traffic often backs up around the blind corner. There is also a favourite police hiding place in the middle of the roundabout and traffic lights. Fortunatly the police and firestation are only 1/2 mile away.
The Cat and Fiddle, Cheshire to: Junction of the A523
So, you think the Cat and Fiddle is hard work? OK, not so many twisties, and a variety of surfaces, this is best done the wrong way round, tho for the first timer, best tackled from the Cat and Fiddle end of things near Macc. Go past the Cat', look out for the hidden dip as you drop left, turn right onto the road that comes back on yourself (the A54 to Congleton)...dead straight but bumpy, then it goes a bit mental, with large drops on the left and blind right handers. This is THE raod to get airborne on, and often coming the other way you can get the front wheel well in the air as the road turn L/R beneath you...heheheh!
There is one particular section just past the turning for Macc forest, coming toward the Cat, looks like a table-top and can almost be taken as such whilst legal, tho for most danger, exceeding by 30% will help air-time...
There are a couple of sections of really crappy surface toward the end of the road, so watch out. Also, if you decide to carry on over the traffic lights (watch out for red-light runners, this junction has seen a lot of fatalities from red light repmobile runners) watch out for the speed cam as you start to come into Congleton - it's on the start of a steep downhill section about 100 yards after the 40 signs, so you should (of course) be sticking the speed down anyway...most fun is to be had by turning round and riding the rollercoaster sections of this road anyway...
Nr Staines to: Nr Staines Lap
Get on the A30 at the M25 heading for Egham. The dual carriageway follows the M25 for a bit. You'll see signs saying 50 MPH right hander. Slow down to about 90 ish, BEWARE the corner is completely blind so take care during busy periods. The corner goes though about 270 degrees down hill. Come down to a roundabout mind the bumps on the middle of the road. Take a right at the roundabout. Up the hill and back down again to a roundabout do a u-turn and the lap begins again. Have fun.
Ashbourne to: Cowers Lane
The great things about this road is there little traffic and no feds.Plus it's mix of tight bends, sweepers, blind crests and flat out straights.Once you get to the traffic lights at Cowers Lane,turn left on to the Wirksworth road (B5023)which is more of the same and a much better route if you are going to Matlock.
