Grantown-on-Spey to: forres
A very well surfaced road with little or no traffic,some interesting fast and not so fast curves, quite windy at times and very exposed. Only a couple of rough patches and absolutely NO cameras.
Garve to: Lochcarron
Built with money from the EU to allow the fish lorries to get up and down easier, this is a wonderful full-throttle or gentle cruising road. Starting 1km north of Garve, the A832 gets you warmed up for the main course after the roundabout at Achnasheen. The A890 is beautifully surfaced, sweeping full throttle curves, no trees, great scenery past Fionn Beinn, Moruisg and others. The only hazards are the ubiquitous woolly bollards as our Shetland friend names them and deer crossing. No police, no cameras but plenty of action. The last few miles are single track to allow your pulse to slow down. Can be combined with the Garve-Ullapool road mentioned above for a great day run.
Brandon to: Fakenham
This is now a great road since it has been mostly resurfaced and slightly widened. At about 30 miles or so you get can plenty of pleasure from the plentiful curves, some long and sweeping and some short and pretty aggressive. Don't forget the straights too, not so many of them but the ones that are there will give you that buzz when blasting past the four-wheelers ! Try it on a Sunday, morning and evenings are best !!
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!!!
