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!
Coventry to: Rugby
Best on Sundays and avoid rush hour at all costs. Combination of sweeping very fast corners and tighter bends perfect knee sliding territory!
Ninfield to: Ashburnham and back again
Want to try out some knee sliders. This is a nutters route with lots of very sharp left and right corners. Be prepared to do some niffty heavy braking (wild/Farm Animal). First go to the kings arms (opposite petrol station) in ninfield the take the road that goes to catsfield. Keep going down this road until you come across a T Junction turn Left here. Keep along this road until you come across another T junction, turn left again. You will then end up where you started from.
