Bristol (via Bath) to: Salisbury
Wicked! Fast, and swweping. It's mostly single carriageway, but very wide lanes. I've never seen police along the route (that's torn it!). Loads of other bikers every time I travel, which shows it's polular. Dead smooth, easy overtaking. Going to go for a blast this weekend, might even go now! My ZX-6R loves it. See ya.
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.
Braco to: Comrie
This is a fine little stretch of high level(ie up in the moors) twisty stuff. It can be got to from the A9 just N of Dunblane. It climbs quickly up the side of a pleasant strath before hitting a series of bends and straights. Watch out for a couple of narrow bridges on near 90 degree bends, and also the carriage way is pretty narrow and sometimes no road markings, most of the way. There is a terrific open view much of the time, so easy to spot traffic despite the twisties. A great set of switchbacks drops you down into the lower ground outside Comrie. Gas up there if you need to. For an alternative return route, head along the A85 thru St Fillans and a lochside blast past Loch Earn to join the always entertaining A 84 at Lochearnhead. Snoot presence is minimal, if present at all, except perhaps in the 2 main villages.
worksop to: Worksop. Notts
This is circular route, hardly using the A60 at all, Leave worksop on the A57, Bus: trunk road. to Todwick T lights, Turn R: unclassified road, sign Thurcroft, After 2mls dog leg straight ahead, Oldcotes, left on to A60. 200 yds, left A630 Rotherham, to edge of Maltby. R/H/turn on to Rotherham / Bawtry road. This ection consits of windy twisty luvly country roads, continue thru Bawtry to Gainsboro: this is your wide sweeping fast road bit, but watch your speed thru EVERTON, because Plod risides there on a VERY, Very regular basis. At 2nd roundabout, take A620 to retford/ worksop. This can be joined to a circle, that can then include a local motorcycle mecca called MATLOCK BATH! Leave on the 619 thru Chesterfield , again lots of nests of plods reside around this area! But its the most directist and easyist route to get there. Leave Chesterfield following brown signs to Chatswrth and Buxton. Baslow T/l: at roundabout after about 1ml T/R to Bakewell. follow signs again to Buxton(A6) Twisty Twisty fasty Fasty knee down naughty bits HEE HEE Buxton, towards Ashbourne, After 5mls Newhaven, look for left turn towards Cromford & Matlock. Yet another cheesy cheesy grinny grinny road. return direct from matlock to chesterfield . Brill Sunday thrash about rush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
