Southport to: Preston
i have only been riding for 2 years on my Yammi RXS-100 but i have aquired a bit of road expirience so here is the best route i have found. at a total of 17 miles it is a comfortable afternoon ride with some fast roads (you ppl may be able to appritiate this more as you probably all have bigger bikes than me lol) no speed cameras as i can remember apart from one as you come into preston itself. you wont notice it until its too late as anyone can tell you the downward gradient into main preston is quite conspicuous until you are actually on it :) by the way, just wanted to say hi to all you bikers out there. im probably guaranteed to meet atleast one of you in my lifetime as i am bike mad :) later all Steve Bailey
Plymouth to: Lands End
Everything in one ride, from flat out dual carriageways to twisties with very few speed cameras and I've never even seen a police car.
Chippenham to: Warwick
A long fast road, perfect if you want to get between bristol region and swindon and vice versa without goin down the tedious m5 or use a thousand different a roads. Be aware there are a few of those government revenue builders oh yeah 'safety' cameras, but if your ridin two up you should invest in a 2006 AA road atlas. It has all the speed camera locations, and its amazing how invisible it makes your plate. But this is the road i take going between my residence in chippenham and my family up in halifax, its about a third of my journey, not including my detours to the Cat an fiddle on the A537 (a definite road to check out). Have fun however if your doing it at night you may want to keep your lights on full and look behind those trucks! Iv'e personally had to go around the side of a truck on a long swooping left, because of a boy racer in his saxo overtaking the truck exactly where i should be passing. So check it out and have fun. (the AA cloaking device works just aswell on any road!)
Stockport to: Stpckport
This is a nice hour ride on a big sports bike (may take considerably longer on anything else) First jump on M60 clokwise from Stockport TC (By the Pyramid) Jump off at next exit A34 Follow this new dual carrage way (lots of nice flip flop roundabouts to get you in the mood) Till the last roundabout Head left for Congleton (Still A34) Follow this untill just before Congleton (Fast and twisty) Then follow Macclesfield signs A536 (not so great surface and one or 2 corners which may catch you out, You have been warned) As you enter Macclesfiled Exit on the Sylk road for Leek A523(ignore the Cat & Fiddle, Too much Police) This road is amazing and well worth a long journey (Just watch out for 2 Cameras in a small 30mph Village!) When you get to Leek, follow signs for Buxton A54 (Also an amazing roller coaster of a road, no cameras, No problems!) From Buxton take the old road A5004 Long Hill into whalley Bridge and follow the traffic clogged A6 back to Stockport. Job Done!!!
