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...


A21

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.


A47

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.


A507

Buntingford, Herts to: A1

I used to live in Buntingford and used this twisty (with a few high speed sweepers) road to warm up my tyres. It's about 10 miles in length so is just a nice warm up to do one way and then the other (although I've done it many times and it's always challenging) and I believe featured in a MCN Best Roads in Britain guide. Mostly national speed limit through countryside. Big grins ! Top site, keep up the good work.
