Callan to: Carrick on Suir
The northern 8 miles or so from Callan to Tullaghought is a mix of some bends and reasonably long straights with a nice sprinkling of fast sweepers.
From Tullaghought to Carrick, the road follows the river valley for a few miles and is a challenging succession of bends with a nice blast open mile a couple of miles from the end before you hit the final series of bends into Carrick.
Surface variable, mostly ok, but you take your chances, especially along the river valley. Probably not the supersports rider's favourite type of tarmac, but for something with half-decent suspension and ok tyres, it's a nice run.
Moretonhampstead to: Yelverton
this road is a fabulous route across Dartmoor. I have had more e-mail praising this road than any other. I reckon it's my favourite too.
Stone to: Nantwich
This is a great road in either direction. it's one of my summer favourites, due mainly to the fact that it is easily accesible from where I live. If you go from the Stone end you have many options as you travel along. You can cut along the A53 towards Shrewsbury and then pick up the A41 or A5 or go further up and your almost into Wales. i have only rarely seen any police activity. Enjoy.
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!
