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? 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.
Bala to: Trawsfynydd
I can't believe this isn't already here. 18 miles of fast sweepers through beautiful countryside, plus a hairpin. Excellent surface. Heavily policed (radar guns, unmarked cars,
Bromley, Kent to: Hastings, Sussex
Long winding road, passing beautiful countryside, and plenty of pubs en-route! Best taken in summer, probably a pig of a road in the wet. Commonly used as a route by bike runs, such as thee May Day Run. Hastings is a mecca for motorcycle fans and in good weather you'll always find plenty of bikers from Hog Clubs to Race Freaks.
Norwich to: Great Yarmouth
A plesent ride from Norwich to Great Yarmouth on a Friday evening ending at the White Swan Pub Whiteswan. This road is part of the ring road around Norwich, going out through the countryside ( watch out for the 50MPH dual carriageway. Turn right onto the Acle Straight about 8 miles before Yarmouth. This is single carriageway but has 2 straight sections each at least 3 miles long. Straight over the first roundabout, you will see the pub on your left as you go over the river bridge.
