A702

Carronbridge to: Elvanfoot

Found this by accident last summer. Take A76 North from Dumfries and pick up the A702 at Carronbridge heading North East to Elvanfoot. Narrow, swinging and sweeping, good cross views. Then take the B7040 to Leadhills, very narrow, very switchback, very twisty and sheep ridden, and finally the B797 through Wanlochead (highest village in Scotland) more of the same before joining A76 again. Perhaps not best enjoyed on anything less than a large trailie or supermoto, but very challenging. Finally if Wendy Cunningham sees this, try my e mail again, your return address didn't work.


A259

Rye to: Brenzett

A great road in good condition with lots of smooth corners. Can be fairly busy in the summer months due to tourist traffic.


PROMENADE

ST-ANNES to: CLEVELEYS

RAPID ACCELERATION, {BLADE) (R1) (GSX/R) NO TWISTIES, JUST STRAIGHT. LOADS OF TRAFFIC LIGHTS AND GATSOS, ADDS TO THE EXCITEMENT, DUCKTAPE REAR PLATE. HOLIDAY GIMPS BY THE SCORE. HMMMMM... DO IT IN WINTER LESS CARNAGE.... COULD USE LOWER PROM I SUPPOSE, BUT YOU,LL COME OUT AT GYNN SQUARE. NOT THE BEST PLACE TO BE ON A NICE DAY!


A422

Banbury to: Stratford on Avon

This road has a good mix of long straights, twisty bits and several drops and climbs. Not a great surface but that just adds to the excitment - about 28 miles in all and passed through some nice villages with decent pubs. From Banbury follow the signs for Stratford and beware of a couple of Gatsos until u get out of the town. 3-4 miles out of Banbury is Wroxton - keep you speed down (30mph) and stop for a pint or grub (there's a couple of places on the main road and a nice traditional pub in the village centre).Heading towards Edge Hill the road is good for 100+ but as you approach EH itself there are a couple of sharp twisty bends that can catch you out. Watch out for Volvos and Sunday drivers especially in summer. Going down Edge Hill fast is a challenge (hairpin) and if u do wring it's neck watch out for cars crossing over as you come out of the dip at the bottom. Great view over the countryside as u descend by the way.

Futher on towards Pillerton Priors it's twisty and fast. Just before u get there u can do a left on to the Fosse Way and head for Cirencester but that's another story. Cross the A429 (roundabout) and blast through more twisties followed by some sweepers with good overtaking opportunities. As you come into Stratford beware of plod and tourists. Head for the river and on Sunday you'll find a shed load of other bikers have a fag and a choc-ice. Stratford itself is full of the usual tourist tat so it's good to make loads of noise and generally play. There are tons of other good routes around the area and if you want to meet loads of other bikers on a Wednesday night head for the Watermans Arms on the A4177 at Hatton near Warwick (about 10 miles). Enjoy...
