Pirbright to: Frimley Green
Awesome set of corners that link together into a great little piece of road. Excellent surface, few houses. Can be tricky to find. Get to Pirbright in Surrey. Ride North through Pirbright till you get to a set of lights at a railway bridge. Turn left and follow the road - eventually it dips 90 degrees right under the railway, and the fun starts. You can make a circuit out of some other roads up here. When you come out in Frimley Green, make a left. Continue on this road (A321) until you get to a double mini-roundabout. Turn left there and you're off again. This eventually comes out by the turn under the railway bridge where you nearly fell off earlier!

Nr Staines to: Nr Staines Lap
Get on the A30 at the M25 heading for Egham. The dual carriageway follows the M25 for a bit. You'll see signs saying 50 MPH right hander. Slow down to about 90 ish, BEWARE the corner is completely blind so take care during busy periods. The corner goes though about 270 degrees down hill. Come down to a roundabout mind the bumps on the middle of the road. Take a right at the roundabout. Up the hill and back down again to a roundabout do a u-turn and the lap begins again. Have fun.
Spalding to: Melton Mowbray
I got the following email on this site from a local - take note.(Ed)
Have read your page with great interest. Just would like to suggest a couple of alterations to your A515/B676 from Spalding to Melton Mowbray. As a local resident in the latter part of the route (Colsterworth to Melton Mowbray) can I just highlight a few things for you to add or not however you judge best.
1. Buckminster to Coston road in poor condition on some corners and these corners are deceptive, most 90 degrees, and there have been several serious accidents and heaps of holes in the hedges and one fatally (father of two) at one corner.
Chippenham to: Chippenham
Chippenham / Wooten-Under-Edge / Chippenham When you leave Chippenham and head towards the M4 on the A350 dual carriageway, rest assured that the roads will improve - the best is near the end. At the M'way junction carry straight on to Malmesbury on A429. Don't go thro Malmesbury but head towards Cirencester - this gives you 2 nice roundabouts, the first one is worth a couple of laps. After the second turn left on the B4014 to Tetbury. A nice swoopy bendy road - about 8 miles. Tootle thro Tetbury being on the lookout for Royals, and turn left on A4135 towards Dursely. Straight across the T'lights and on a few miles. Now things start to get interesting. Turn left on B4058 to Wooten-Under-Edge. This road is a lovely series of lefts and rights down a hill - although they are blind they are still top corners, and a couple of trips up and down from Wooten centre are recommended. In Wooten find the B4060 to Wickwar. Good fast roads- at one point there is a shear drop on BOTH sides of the road - Quarries! From Wickwar on to Chipping Sodbury - a good place for a coffee. Take the A452 towards Bath and Stroud. As you pass a large caravan sales showroom be prepared to exceed the limit for it is worth it. About a mile on the road starts to go up hill, it also turns in to 3 lanes (a 40 mph limit). The up hill right hander is a joy at 80. Keep going and you will take a 270 degree long left - I guess it is more than 1/4 mile long! Just go for it. Straight across the A46 at t'lights. The next 10 miles is beautiful. Just ride what you see. Watch out for Yatton Kennel and go slowly back to the A420 to Chippenham. ENJOY.
