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!
PERSHORE to: EVERSHAM
ONLY 6 MILES BUT GOOD FLAT OUT BENDS A REAL BUZZ ,TRY IT ON THE WAY TWO THE BULLDOG
Plymouth to: Lands End
Everything in one ride, from flat out dual carriageways to twisties with very few speed cameras and I've never even seen a police car.
Billingshurst to: Petersfield
Huge variety - lots of sweeps, mixed surfaces. Watch out for plods in the villages. Watch out for 30mph camera on way into Billingshurst if coming from North. Road sweeps east from B,hurst through a small village. Crap until then. Once out of village, follow twisties through the forest on a great surface. Twisties for around 7 miles including a real bastard right hander. Last mile and a half before Petworth is totally straight. Time to see if the bike will do 60mph (honest officer). Go through Petworth slowly (there's no way you can do it quickly!!) Once out on the 252 again there's a long sweeping wide road where you can really pan it. Watch out for nasty twists in Cowdray Park.....it looks flat but the contours can throw you wide. More of the same until Petersfield. Usual Surrey rules apply.....30 thru the towns (or get 'plodded') and watch out for crap on the roads. Get to Petersfield. Get a drink. Grin a lot.
