B4O74

Reading to: Oxford

This road offers a good variety to most riders and is best ridden solo. No pillion, no terror. The road leaves Reading by climbing thru Caversham out of the Thames Valley into the Chilterns. Suddenly you're into open countryside flanked by fields....for about ?mile and then the twisties (a.k.a. the 13 bends of death) start and carry on for about 4 miles going down into valleys and thru woods with plenty off side roads offering interesting side trips and a multitude of refreshment stops. Once you pass the turn off to Woodcote (for those interested in picking up a few motorcycle accessories M?[01491681487] reside here) the surrounding countryside opens up and becomes very Downs-ish all the way to Oxford. The road does carry a fair amount of traffic so intelligence gear should be engaged. Enjoy.


A5

Shrewsbury to: Holyhead

Good - the road down the coast all the way to Tenby is great. All round Snowdonia is fab Mid wales thru the Clun forest is great


A 47

Leicester to: Peterborough

Very very fast, big bike stuff. I'm surprised there's not more bikers on it. Not very twisty but lots of swooping bends, fast straights, very long, very very fast (110 - 120mph +) uphill & downhill sections, good visibility. Not much traffic if your an early riser but lots of space to overtake anyway. I've never timed myself on a bike but a few years ago, one very clear summer evening, I went from Bushby(Leicester) to Castor(Peterborough) in 24 minutes in my VW Corrado G60. A good rider should beat this easy on a decent bike. Email your time if you do. Distance, about 35 miles end to end.

Watch out for the FIVE O outside of Leicester and on the dual caridgeway into Peterborough.


A339

Alton to: Basingstoke

Ah the infamous A339. The site of several deaths lately. It's a great, technical road with a good surface, but beware. High speed corners + miscalculation = risk of severe trauma/death. If you want to do it, ride the road several times up and down below the national limit. Look for the junctions, look for cops, look for crap on the road, look out for squids riding it too: they sometimes cross the centreline oncoming. When you're sure, try it out, it's a lot of fun: but don't wind up in the Newspaper.
