Calder Bridge to: Broughton In Furness
This road is mega, very few Police so speed is not a problem. Road condition is very good, well surfaced, fast, good combination of bends, over rises, few cars, this is one of the best roads in the UK for going fast and safe on. I won the MGP in 1991, and practiced on this road, it taught me alot. www.mcspares.co.uk

Warwick to: Cirencester
This road has been referred to before as most of it is part of the Fosse Way. Lots of fast straights especially at the Cirencester end (120+) but watch for junctions and road surface. Some great bends but generally of the off-camber or tricky type. Keep a sharp eye out for police (i.e. don't scream along any straights unless you can see it's clear). Most of the police are to be found in the middle section and it's usual to spot 1 a day on a two-way blast. Watch for tourists (loads in summer), plenty of places to overtake so don't take any stupid chances (double white lines are there for a reason) and watch for concealed entrances, idiots, mud on road etc. Some of the corners can be dodgy due to road surface and the whole route is generally very bumpy and poorly maintained. In fact one stretch of the road is so bad they've put a ! sign at the side of the road. That's because if you do what I did and hit it too fast the first time you'll be saying f!!! me. Great road to test your handling - and your bottle if your handling fails it's test! Seriously though, take it easy the first couple of times and get to know it if you want to ride fast and enjoy it. NOT MUCH FUN AT NIGHT (you can't see the road surface early/well enough to ride it fast and you'll never memorize that many bumps!) Bear in mind it's not well suited to pillions either. Happy scratching.

Fast well surfaced road, with fast sweeping bends and not too much traffic - worth trying
