Crediton to: Crediton (Devon)
Tyre squaring off??? Use this long afternoon route to grind it back! A3072 from Crediton to Tiverton joining the A396 after Cadbury and a steep decent. Now it's A396 heaven all the way to Dunster on the north coast, barely a momoent with the bike upright. This road is total star quality for views and corners... the only draw back is a very coarse and broken road texture under many of the wooded sections. At Dunster, resist the temptation to turn 180 and ride it back to Tiverton, instead turn West on the A39 for Porlock and its infamous Hill. Road surface is now good and the trip over the top of Exmoor with the sea to your right is a total blast ***watch for dozey drivers exiting picnic areas at 3MPH*** Masses of twisty bits and a tough climb out of Lynton is good value.. More fine corners on the run into Barnstable where things get rather less fun. Avoid the A361 route back to Tiverton as it is the most boring blast ever and popular with the local constabulary.. instead chose The A377, or if you are still craving speedy twists then the the tedious A39 stretch to Bideford leads on to the A386 to Great Torrington and a simple cut back to Crediton Via the A3072. Both the 377 & 386 follow rivers and so include some interesting corners and views.. Loads of traffic at peak season.. mid week in May or September is your best bet. ENJOY.
Belmont-lancashire to: Rivington + white coppice
Head to belmont on the A675 when you get to belmont you will see a pub on the corner, turn up that road to rivington. This is one big playground the first stretch is very smooth and twisty with dips in the road the rest gets a bit hairy, enjoy

Kimbolton to: Bedford
I am after some help from all you fellow bikers. I am working for the consultancy Babtie looking at the B660 road link from Kimbolton down to Bedford. There have been a fair few accidents along this route and I am looking to help reduce them. I am therefore after some feedback from those that ride the route on problem areas. Do you find that signage is inadequate or the condition of the road is unsatisfactory etc? What would you suggest we might do to improve riding conditions without spoiling the enjoyment factor of the bends and straights? I would appreciate any feedback in order for me to submit accurate set of recommendations and make the route more of a pleasure for you all. Thanks again Richard Walmsley Highway Engineer, email@example.com
