Aylesbury to: Tring
Knee sliding heaven! Probably been submitted before but this double roundabout figure of 8 is EXCELLENT! Take TRING exit off A41 and you are on the roundabout with excellent view. Linked to it is a fantastic long curve which is like a roundabout but with only one road on and one off, fantastic. I have been riding only 6 weeks on FZR600R but can get both left and right knee down all way round. Babylon turn up now and again but usually are very good humoured and ask all to leave. Good in the day, but some Sundays have seen 20+ riders. Enjoy!!
Kington to: Aberystwyth
This route covers approx 50 miles through the Cambrian mountains (hills really). It's an exhilarating ride following fast flowing rocky rivers,hills and forestry. The corners are out of this world, there fast with good visability and excellent grippy surface's. There's no worn tarmac,potholes etc that have a tendency to install fear in all of us. There are no fixed speed cameras in any of the national speed limit areas of this route, so safe fast riding is achievable. The Foresters Arms in Llanfihangel-Nant-Melan is a nice biker-friendly stop with a good cup of coffee.
Enjoy this route like i have many times remembering to keep to the speed limits through the villages and where applicable. Take a breather,put your visor up,relax your wrists and get ready for the next awesome section of this route. Neil.Cardiff.GSXR-750.
Dunoon to: Dunoon via Strachur -circular route
The Dunoon circular route is 68.2 miles, offering an excellent challenge of diverse driving conditions, gradients and cambers. Try this out, you won't be disappointed.
The Strachur to Dunoon stretch is a particularly fast section of road. Catch the Western Ferry from Gourock ( 0141 332 9766 ) to Dunoon. On arrival, drive north west across the B836 as if heading for Otter Ferry but take the south route A8003 to Tighnabruaich. Continue south, then follow the road north to Otter Ferry, with its lovely pebble beach and little harbour. Continue north on the B8000 to Strachur.
Finally, to complete the circle, head south from Strachur back to Dunoon on the A815. The Strachur to Dunoon section is pretty fast going and a fantastic stretch of road. Unsurpassed scenery with plenty of restaurants, hotels and a few camping sites dotted here and there. A particularly good one is situated on the banks of Loch Eck which runs parallel with the A815 for several miles. Interestingly, if arriving at Strachur this way (from Dunoon) you can head on north up to the Highlands via via Oban for Fort William, or turn east to visit the Trossachs as both routes comprise excellent roads and world class scenery.
St. John to:
Head out to the parish of St John and at the church take a right. Go past the L'Auberge de Nord pub and at the end of the road take a left. This stretch of road is known as the New North Road - it is short but an excellent place to get your knee down.
