Laggan to: Spaen Bridge
I was on holiday in Scotland a couple of years ago and this was my trip to the shops. It's abour 30 miles of beautiful scenery fabulous bends and very little traffic.
Laggan is just off the A9: come off on the A889 at Dalwhinnie, (only do the distillery trip on the way back, please!) or Kingussie. At the other end, Spaen Bridge is just a few miles from Fort William.
The stretch alongside Loch Laggan is the best, with rocks on one side and water on the other. But the roads are good quality all along, with plenty of space and a good surface, (last time I was there). And of course bends. There are a few more-or-less straight bits - just enough to catch your breath before the next set of twisties. The first time I did it was in miserable wet weather and it was still brilliant!
Mitchelstown to: Mitchelstown
Head out the ballyporeen road, go straight through toward's cloheen and onto Ard Finnan. From here go over the bridge and take the middle road up the hill and onto cahair. Turn left at the square in cahair and go past the castle and take the first left toward's cloheen. Into Cloheen and take the road over the Vee into Lizmore. Take the tallow road and then onto Castlelyon's and into Fermoy, Take the main cork dublin road from fermoy to mitchelstown for some very high speed bend's. This route is about 70 miles in total with s bend's mountain road's 90 degree drop off's and hairpins, biker's paradise. The surface is mixed with smooth and rough on the route. Watch for cops bewteen Fermoy and mitchelstown, other than that nail it.
Pirbright to: Frimley Green
Awesome set of corners that link together into a great little piece of road. Excellent surface, few houses. Can be tricky to find. Get to Pirbright in Surrey. Ride North through Pirbright till you get to a set of lights at a railway bridge. Turn left and follow the road - eventually it dips 90 degrees right under the railway, and the fun starts. You can make a circuit out of some other roads up here. When you come out in Frimley Green, make a left. Continue on this road (A321) until you get to a double mini-roundabout. Turn left there and you're off again. This eventually comes out by the turn under the railway bridge where you nearly fell off earlier!
