Llandrindod Wells to: Newtown
A terrific road set in beautiful Welsh countryside. A combination of wide sweeping bends and tight demanding hairpins. Not recommended for Harley's or other fat boys.!
Barton le Clay, Bedfordshire to: Hitchen, Hertfordshire
Take the B655 out of Barton towards Hexton and Hitchen and as soon as you come out of the village it's into a slightly curved open blast of countryside. As you come up the slight rise a lovely right hand bend (be careful of the drop on the left!) takes you down into Hexton. It is here where it is worth slowing down to the 40mph speed limit for the 150 yards through the village as the bottom of the hill into Hexton levels off very quickly and sports bikes nearly ground themselves!
After going through the bottom of Hexton the road rises steeply and comes out of the 40mph limit, opening the throttle again sees a flurry of trees fly by before dropping round a fast left hander before rising again into a fast rising right before slowing to a 3rd/2nd gear sharp left hander. Opening the throttle again blasts you down the flat straight out of the trees and up the hill through a fast right hander and into another fast left (watch the rough tarmac!). A little wiggle left takes you onto the flat and round the fast slight left hander and onto another fast straight. Going back into the trees takes you into a quite fast right (be careful as it is on a deceptive slight rise making the bike very light!) and then into a good series of fast lefts and rights finsihing with a slightly sharper left. The trees then open as you blast along the last curvy straight. Caution must be taken towards the end of the straight due to a right hand bend with roads joining on either side, after which another quite sharp left takes you up the hill and into the 40mph which starts the slow down into Hitchen.
A cracking 4 mile ride which you can keep going over getting faster and faster with no reported police presence (after 4 years of riding the route) and not too much traffic. Bliss!
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.
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,
