A1307,A604,A1071

Cambridge to: Ipswich

Leave Cambridge via Fulbourn, over the obligatory sprint up past the Gogs and head towards Haverhill down the A1307. Follow the road to Clare and then Sudbury. Nice road when out of the towns. Once out of Sudbury, head towards Colchester and take the left turn towards Hadleigh down the A1071 - this road is a corker - fast corners, slow corners, long corners, straights, very little police presence that I've noticed, and very few places for them to hide. Follow that to Ipswich, realise how crap Ipswich is and head back to Cambridge... Also some lovely scenery...so I've heard. Had a great race on my CBR6 against a TDM850 - v. quick out of corners. Can't _wait_ to take my new R1 down there...


ex-A828

Creagan to: Creagan

The A828 used to take a detour all the way around Loch Creran until a bridge was built on the coast. This has left a six mile oxbow of old A-road abandoned with only one house on it and virtually no traffic whatsoever. And it is the most amazing bit of road, hugging the loch it is a never ending series of bends, sweepers, switch backs and blind rises. Going north, pass over the new bridge and keep your eyes open for a small sign saying local traffic only. The is the entrance to the Creaganring. Have fun.


A939

Nairn to: Ballater

The road was drawn by someone who had pissed as a fart. When it leaves Nairn heading for Grantown it seem fairly straight but still and interesting hard ride. But as things unfold its like your worst nightmare. In trying to push it down the road I ended up twice going down farmers dirt roads (by watching the gap in the trees along the road) one needing the lay-by that used to form part of the road to get round the bend and finally cutting out a corner altogether and riding across the moor for 20 yards. It is one of the twistiest little roads I have ever been down. I ended up wrecking my knee on a cat's eye when it trapped my boot. Give it a try either way but if you come up through Glen Shee first you'll need a rest by the time you get to Nairn. P.S. Watch out for the hump back bridge it's a real flyer!!!


A161+A1077

Hessle to: Hessle

Starting at the Humber Bridge roundabout (Hessle) head east on the A63 (boring), at North Cave get onto the B1230 follow this to Howden and then get on the A614 through Goole. Go through the docks and take the A161 towards Swinefleet (I kid you not !). Now that's the boring bit over with, now comes the good bit. The A161 is a flat twisty road that runs along the bank of the river Ouse with only a few village's but plenty of visibility round the bends. Just after Crowle turn left onto the A18 towards Scunthorpe, just before Scunny turn left onto the A1077. Again this is an ace road with lots of twist'ies and sharp 90 degree bends. Watch out here as quite a few bikes end up in hedges due to being caught out. At South Ferriby there are some ace views over the Humber of the Bridge, at Barton turn on to the A15 and the bridge approach. Then once you have paid your toll (1) your home again.
