Hertford to: Hertford
Combines a couple of the great routes already on this site. Out of Hertford west on A414 // Right at Hertingfordbury up onto Thieves Lane // left onto B1000 towards Welwyn Garden City // Nice twisty road with a downhill corkscrew mid way // right hander after corkscrew is deceiving (oncoming cars tend to run wide and has claimed to two bike fatalities // past Tewin and Welwyn turnoffs // follow though Digswell (speed bumps and lane narrowing // Over roundabout onto A1000 DualCW // Go under A1 // Straight over roundabout still on A1000 // At Clock Hotel take Left to Welwyn village//Take B656 Codicote Road (Ed note: A reader advises me that this road has been attracting some accidents, so take care, particularly on the corner by Vanstones Garden Centre // Follow through to Hitchin
twisties and quick but watch for Garden Centre Volvos and scrap yard on RHS (lorries/parking/oil)// At Hitchin take A602 East towards Stevenage // Under A1 (Stevenage North Junction) and take B197 through Graveley // at T left towards Letchworth and loop back round and take the A6141 into Baldock // At Tesco go straight over roundabout// right at next roundabout onto A507 to Buntingford // top road but plenty of speed traps (never got this road right !) // At Buntingford roundabout go South onto A10 // Do a couple of laps of the Puckeridge Indy Circuit (dualcw between the N and S Puckeridge roundabouts // back South on A10 // At Thundridge Go right onto B158 by Anchor Beefeater (twisty) // Follow B158 to Bengeo and into Hertford // Check tires are now feathered to shit...// Early Sunday evening is good and you get to do the A507 with the sun on your back. // Police generally in Gravelly area and on A507

Challenging in the extreme, Good surface, watch for SHEEP. Start at Tesco in Macc. Head out along Silk Road towards LEEK. Pass football gnd on right. Carry on to lights on FAST A road. At lights go left to BUXTON. After 10 miles of hair raising wheelies off rises and scraping of undercarriage turn RIGHT at junction to BUXTON. At next junction go LEFT. Ride into BUXTON, watch for LEFT TURN signed to WHALEY BRIDGE. Follow this road for 8 miles to WHALEY BRIDGE. At lights go STAIGHT OVER. Follow road to MACCLESFIELD and you will arrive at TESCO ready for more.
exeter to: barnstaple
this road is a fast road with loads of places for tractors & cars to pull out on you & if you dont mind a realy crap road surface and do not mind totaling your pride and joy then quite likley like loads of other biker's you will kill your self on it. THERE ARE FAR TO MANY BIKERS IN DEVON GETTING KILLED FOR FUCK ALL I OWN A BANDIT 12 AND RIDE LIKE A TOOSER UNDER THE RITE SERCOMESTANCES AND THE RIGHT ROAD BUT THE A377 IS NOT THE PLACE TO DO IT
Billingshurst to: Petersfield
Huge variety - lots of sweeps, mixed surfaces. Watch out for plods in the villages. Watch out for 30mph camera on way into Billingshurst if coming from North. Road sweeps east from B,hurst through a small village. Crap until then. Once out of village, follow twisties through the forest on a great surface. Twisties for around 7 miles including a real bastard right hander. Last mile and a half before Petworth is totally straight. Time to see if the bike will do 60mph (honest officer). Go through Petworth slowly (there's no way you can do it quickly!!) Once out on the 252 again there's a long sweeping wide road where you can really pan it. Watch out for nasty twists in Cowdray Park.....it looks flat but the contours can throw you wide. More of the same until Petersfield. Usual Surrey rules apply.....30 thru the towns (or get 'plodded') and watch out for crap on the roads. Get to Petersfield. Get a drink. Grin a lot.
