Kendal to: Carlisle
My favourite road in the whole country - I go to Scotland a lot from Burnley in Lancashire, but it never really feels like I'm on my way until I start climbing the A6 out of Kendal towards Shap summit. The rest of the run from Shap to Penrtih and then to Carlisle is mainly flat, but the road is in good repair with lots of sweeping bends to get your knee down on. No police presence (never seen any, yet) but a few villages along the way. It's pretty easy to average about 90mph from Kendal to Carlisle though!
Bridport to: Weymouth
Was a cracking road but the local council in there infinate wisdom have put a 50mph limit between Bridport and Abbotsbury , just a warning really plod are bound to be patroling the road so take it easy and keep it rubber side down :)
Lewes to: Newhaven
Take the A 27 from Lewes signposted Eastbourne after level crossing take 2nd exit off roundabout signposted Nehaven and Seaford.Take it easy for ist right hander (Cow's deposits on road)then accelerate hard onto straight before left then right combination...careful artics always turn over here.Continue on for about 4 miles of very fast A road with lots of challenging bends.Road is very popular with bikers and early sunday morning the silence is often broken by a Ducati or two on full chat.....Get to Newhaven ...have breakfast and take the road back,Make sure you do it early in the am before it fills up with trucks and traffic for the ferry.
Arrochar to: Arden
The A814 from Arrochar is up and down like a midgie's whatsit, hence its nickname of the washboard. You'll not get anything down here, but it twists and turns like a man on the gibbet - great fun, but there are a few places where you'll have to take it easy. The A817 is a different proposition. The 'road to nowhere' was built to enable construction of Faslane submarine base. It's barely used by four-wheelers and you can blow away the cobwebs and find out what happens at redline. I've never seen them myself, but it's the sort of place the rozzers just might hang out.
