Chipping Ongar to: Chelmsford
Mobile cameras througout this area now. Watch your speed in the villages and on the side roads. Plod everywhere it seems as Essex are cracking down on us. Campaign to rid area of speeding bikes apparently.
Grantown-on-Spey to: forres
A very well surfaced road with little or no traffic,some interesting fast and not so fast curves, quite windy at times and very exposed. Only a couple of rough patches and absolutely NO cameras.
Garve to: Lochcarron
Built with money from the EU to allow the fish lorries to get up and down easier, this is a wonderful full-throttle or gentle cruising road. Starting 1km north of Garve, the A832 gets you warmed up for the main course after the roundabout at Achnasheen. The A890 is beautifully surfaced, sweeping full throttle curves, no trees, great scenery past Fionn Beinn, Moruisg and others. The only hazards are the ubiquitous woolly bollards as our Shetland friend names them and deer crossing. No police, no cameras but plenty of action. The last few miles are single track to allow your pulse to slow down. Can be combined with the Garve-Ullapool road mentioned above for a great day run.
Swansea to: Swansea
Approx 120 miles, fast roads, only problem too many villages, not many cameras, police etc, some boring straight roads (open throttle?, Route-Swansea-Merthyr Tydfil-Brecon-Llandovery-Carmarthen-swansea
