ITS ONLY4-5 MILES LONG BUT ITS HAS EVERYTING FROM KILLER HAIRPINS, ULTRA QUICK 'S' s AND A SUPER FAST STRAIGHT. FROM PLYMTON TAKE THE ROAD TO BORRINDON HALL AND KEEP GOING (watch out for the take off!) until you reach the cross roads). HEAD FOR CADOVER BRIDGE (STRAIGHT ONish) AND THROTTLE UO TO A HUNDRED (WATCH OUT FOR THE SHEEP). AFTER THE FAST (DIPPING) RIGHT HANDER AND OVER THE BRIDGE THE ROAD TURNS AND SQUIRMS LIKE A SKAKE. KEEP WATCHING OUT FOR THOSE SHEEP WHILST PLAYING DARE WITH THE HAIRPINS. tHE LAST HALF MILE TAKE IS A LEASURELY STROLL INTO YELVERTON WHERE A NICE PLATE OF CHIPS CAN BE HAD AT THE ROCK INN. aLTERNATIVELY YOU CAN GOE ON TO MORTONHAMSTEAD OR CALLINGTON IN CORNWALL.

Macclesfield to: Buxton
The Cat & fiddle is the best.Tight hairpins for kneedown action (although it slows you down),short straights where you can wring your bikes neck,fast double apex bends all interlinked to give you the top buzz when you get it right. The best time to do your laps are on long summer nights when the traffic is light,its like the TT. Due to too much press & fatalities the road is dogged by police & traffic at weekends.But if this is the only time you can come up,watch out for a unmarked green BMW car along with unmarked BMW bikes as well as a plane to spoil your fun. If you do get bored or you've just scared your self silly there are more top runs not far away such as A5004 Buxton to Whaley Bridge (watch out for some tight ones),and A535 Chelford to Holmes Chapel (very fast) to name just a few. Hope this is some help ENJOY.
Ross-on-Wye to: Ledbury / Malvern
Loads of gradient, quick flicks, hairpins, S's, etc. and room to overtake. Great test of man & machine, space available to really open out the motor and cook the brakes. No police, occasional old fart doing 35mph - takes a bit of learning. Loads of quick bikes use this road in the summer - many clock 130mph + on the straight past Much Marcle. Well worth a visit - start slow and build up to a frenzy!
Llandrindod Wells to: Newtown
A terrific road set in beautiful Welsh countryside. A combination of wide sweeping bends and tight demanding hairpins. Not recommended for Harley's or other fat boys.!
