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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Northallerton to: Scorton
Great back road. Usually very quiet. 10 miles long. Turn round & return to Northallerton for 20 miles of full on knee sliding action ! Enjoy ...
West Meon to: A31
Cant believe I have not seen this stretch of road on this site yet ! Fairly short stretch of road about 10 miles long but what a 10 miles. Loads of bikers meet here at the crossroads of the A32 and A272 by the Little Chef restaurant. First few miles of A272 from the A32 is the best. Really fast, really twisty open coutry roads with loads of Vis. Not many junctions off the road so you can hammer it with peace of mind (is there such a thing). Follow A272 all the way to A31 junction which is a roundabout. Get your knee down round the roundabout and then straight back onto the A272 again back to the Little Chef on the A32. About a 10 minute ride but unmissable if you are travelling down the A32
Duffield to: Matlock
This is the alternative route to Matlock now the 50 signs are up on the A6 (Derby to Matlock).The road starts in Duffield at the first left turn as you enter the village from Derby. The road takes you through villages at a legal 60mph. The road is always empty! Take this road until you get to traffic lights at a village called Cowers Lane. Go straight on through Wirksworth and Cromford. At the bottom of the hill turn left onto the A6, 1m to Matlock. This road is fast and has plenty of knee down corners and fast open straights. The bonus is that there are no coppers... they're all on the A6!
