A4& B4192

Newbury to: Swindon

Starting from Newbury take the A4 to Hungerford. The road can be busy but there are many wonderful overtaking opportunities, wide and with good vision. Leave Hungerford on the A4 towards Marlborough but quickly turn right onto the B4192. I did this on a Saturday at 11am and there was very little traffic, just some great straights, a couple of very pretty villages and enough bends to satisfy those much braver than me. The only trouble is you end up in Swindon but you can then go up to Faringdon on the A420, to Wantage on the A417 and then back to Newbury via the B4494, a great road. The whole journey is about 45 miles with lots of stopping off places.


A30

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.


A30

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.


A414

Harlow to: Finchingfield

The A414 from Harlow to Chipping Ongar has some good bends but a few double white lines. At the Four Wantz roundabout (BP garage) turn left onto the B184 to Great Dunmow, when you get to the T junction after about 7 miles turn right on to the A1060 Chelmsford. Then after about a mile turn left back onto the B184. Go through Great Dunmow High street, it's a bit narrow but loud pipes do sound good. As you leave Dunmow turn right onto the B1057, which is on a left hand corner. This road will take you all the way to Finchingfield. The road surfaces are all pretty good and there are some good corner combinations with a left hander that just gets tighter and tighter between Dunmow and Finchingfield. When you get there, there is a good biker friendly pub on a big green that gets really busy in the summer.
