Rotherham to: Louth
This is a MUST for scratchers going to Cadwell Park! It can be split into Four sections Section1 Rotherham-Gainsbrough, not much bar a couple of staights and some twisty around Bawtry. Section 2 Gainsbrough to Caedby Corner, Flat out along Gainsbrough tops into some ace sections of knee abuse, watch the villages though. Good cafe at Caenby Corner ( not the little Chef) Section 3 Caenby Corner to Ludford Magna, this is the best section, many flat out sections and bum wrenching curves, go mad here, but ignore the ponces who insist on going fast and then riding back and watching others doing the same section.Good bikerscafe in Willingham woods picnic area, many bikes at a weekend. Best corner? ...Mmmm... it has to be the section known locally as Post office Corner Section 4 Ludford to Louth, Fast section, no cameras(as yet)feel the bike getting light as you crest those Lincolnshire Wolds! Go and have yourself a REAL good shakedown, Fondest regards and congratulations on a fine website Hubert.
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!!!
Baldock to: Buntingford
9 miles in Hertfordshire, nicely undulating with some great curves. The road's in two sections, divided by the picturesque village of Cottered with it's excellent village pub (The Bull) and less excellent 30mph speed limit in this otherwise national-limit road. Both sections give ample opportunity for knee-down, but the Baldock half is fastest (easy ton-plus) and has a little solid-double-white-line towards the middle. The Buntingford half is a little tighter and has a nice tight S-bend. The road surface is generally very good but is a little bumpy in places. The route is terminated by roundabouts at both ends so it's easy to go around for another go :-)
