Hungerford to: Marlborough
11 miles of wide speedy, long curves with a few slow bendy bits. Try it, their are no speed camera's, yet, just watch for plod.
Basingstoke to: Alton
Such a sweet, sweet road. However, if you're not careful it will kill you. It's a fast road with evil curves. Like a previous poster said, if you don't know this road very, very well, ride up and down it a couple of times taking it really easy and make sure you have a good picture of the curves. Do this midweek when it's quiet and watch the t-junctions. Take great care passing other bikers (they often drift over) and watch for oncoming vehicles crossing the white lines. You WILL encounter knobs on this road, don't be one of them. The aim of the game is to get the curves so, so right. Smooth is good, ragged is bad. Mid-corner speeds are impressive. Watch out at the kink for white-line crossers. Recommended tool: ZX-7R. Recommended attitude: Silky smooth. Recommended follow-up: Can't beat a shandy and ten Benson.
Edinburgh to: A1 Junction
Approx 150 yes 150 miles of every situation you can think of, from Dual carriageway to sweeping curves, tight bends, blind summits the lot. I used to do this twice a weekend, Friday and Sunday. (commuting 368 miles to work in Stevenage) Couldn't wait to get off the A1. Just try some of it if it's too long......
Ashford to: Folkestone
On a nice warm sunny day, try taking the A20 from the Ashford roundabout J10 M20. Follow the road through some nice wide curves, and great straights, national speed limit applies to most sections, although please slow down when entering some of the more picturesque villages.....Bikers in Kent need to maintain a good image!!!!! The A20 takes you alongside the M20,although the back roads are generally empty, look out for the odd FRENCH tourist who's lost the M20..ha ha ha. Safe Riding, and if you see a copper Busa zipping around there, give us a flash!!!
