St. John to:
Head out to the parish of St John and at the church take a right. Go past the L'Auberge de Nord pub and at the end of the road take a left. This stretch of road is known as the New North Road - it is short but an excellent place to get your knee down.
Yeovil to: Bridgwater
20 odd miles of zero police, v fast sweepers, tight sections and wheelie straights and superb 140 mph bridge jump (grip the tank with your knees and you\'ll see) make this a little gem that I need to share, as I hardly ever get to race anyone along it. Local boys know. Check it out.
Bedford to: Somewhere near Peterborough (A1)
I first rode this little blinder back in 1986 when I passed my bike test and have never tired of it. Coming out of Bedford past the Golf centre on your right there is nearly always a speed trap, so take it easy until you see the G.L.F (go like f..k) sign. You start off with a tight right hander and then swoop downhill- watch for blind car drivers at the jct at the bottom of the hill. This road consists of many 90 deg. bends but all are visible and the land is mainly undulating. Because of these it is a cracking place to learn how to get your knee down. In one of the tiny villages there is a primary school right by the side of the road so PLEASE keep your speed down thru there folks. When you reach the T- junction at Kimbolton turn left and through Kimbolton itself. Immediately after the village turn right and carry on, the road becoming a litte bumpy in places. Cross over the A14 on the flyover and turn right at the T jct.After Old Weston turn right at first jct (this is easy to miss!) and carry on. Enjoy until the A1 and turn round- the road is very different the other way as some bends have non constant radii!
worksop to: Worksop. Notts
This is circular route, hardly using the A60 at all, Leave worksop on the A57, Bus: trunk road. to Todwick T lights, Turn R: unclassified road, sign Thurcroft, After 2mls dog leg straight ahead, Oldcotes, left on to A60. 200 yds, left A630 Rotherham, to edge of Maltby. R/H/turn on to Rotherham / Bawtry road. This ection consits of windy twisty luvly country roads, continue thru Bawtry to Gainsboro: this is your wide sweeping fast road bit, but watch your speed thru EVERTON, because Plod risides there on a VERY, Very regular basis. At 2nd roundabout, take A620 to retford/ worksop. This can be joined to a circle, that can then include a local motorcycle mecca called MATLOCK BATH! Leave on the 619 thru Chesterfield , again lots of nests of plods reside around this area! But its the most directist and easyist route to get there. Leave Chesterfield following brown signs to Chatswrth and Buxton. Baslow T/l: at roundabout after about 1ml T/R to Bakewell. follow signs again to Buxton(A6) Twisty Twisty fasty Fasty knee down naughty bits HEE HEE Buxton, towards Ashbourne, After 5mls Newhaven, look for left turn towards Cromford & Matlock. Yet another cheesy cheesy grinny grinny road. return direct from matlock to chesterfield . Brill Sunday thrash about rush!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
