Rotherham to: Louth
This is a MUST for scratchers going to Cadwell Park! It can be split into Four sections Section1 Rotherham-Gainsbrough, not much bar a couple of staights and some twisty around Bawtry. Section 2 Gainsbrough to Caedby Corner, Flat out along Gainsbrough tops into some ace sections of knee abuse, watch the villages though. Good cafe at Caenby Corner ( not the little Chef) Section 3 Caenby Corner to Ludford Magna, this is the best section, many flat out sections and bum wrenching curves, go mad here, but ignore the ponces who insist on going fast and then riding back and watching others doing the same section.Good bikerscafe in Willingham woods picnic area, many bikes at a weekend. Best corner? ...Mmmm... it has to be the section known locally as Post office Corner Section 4 Ludford to Louth, Fast section, no cameras(as yet)feel the bike getting light as you crest those Lincolnshire Wolds! Go and have yourself a REAL good shakedown, Fondest regards and congratulations on a fine website Hubert.
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.
Fort William to: Ballachulish-Oban
OK, I do like the Cat and Fiddle, but lets get this straight, there is no road on earth, even Route 1 in the US, that comes close to the stretch from Ballachulish to Oban. Twisty? You get sweaty just bimbling along, there are virtually NO straights at all on this road, yet there is also next to no traffic most of the time. The section from Fort William is absolutely fabulous if you enjoy high speed cornering, er, very high speed, like close to the top end of a modern sportbike, so I am told, of course...
After Ballachulish, tighten up those sliders and drop your shoulders and bend your arms and get ready for a workout...some really grippy surfaces (tho some are really, really shite in the damp), interesting blind corners, great crests for wheelying - normally crossed up, making you feel a right hero, even though it just sort of happens anyway...
There is one section, and I can't remember exactly where, along the coast, where the road goes out into the sea almost, in little penisulas which are made up of 230 degrees corners (yes, they DO come back on themselves) of a constant radius, taken at a reasonable (above 60) pace. There are about 8 of these all in a row on FLAT grippy tarmac, try not to faint with pleasure...you need spare sliders for the return journey, or even half-way through...
