broughshane to: carnlough
this is one of the best roads to take to the antrim coast.the road surface is a good finish with fast sweeping bends as far as the sheddings corner(this is the first sharp corner).after this there is a set of twisty mountain corners(the quarry bends) that lead to a very nice view of the north sea and a drop into the town of carnlough.here you can get a fuel top up and some food before following the antrim coast road.
Llangollen to: Betsy-Coed and beyond
More twists and kinks than a recoiled cargo net. It follows a meandering river for much of the way and doesn't tend to cut corners - for a great day out follow it all the way through Llanberis between the mountains of Snowdon and the Glyders. Caution through the Llanberis pass though - beatiful as the cliffs are, beware sheep and folk with rucsacs and blisters.
Cirencester to: Cirencester
From Cirencester, Glos, where we live, to Gloucester on the A417, round Gloucester towards the Forest of Dean then branch of towards Newent on the B4215, then on towards Dymock. (Quite amzingly, there was very little traffic at all, and no Gatso's - what a bonus). We then joined the A4172, then back onto the A417, (which is a ridiculously straight Roman Road but with long sweeping bends with great vision), all the way to the A49 and to Leominster.
From there, and this is where it gets really good, we took first the A44, then the A4112, and the A438 all the way to Brecon where we joined the A470. The panoramic views as well as the hills and dips made this part of the journey better than sex. I just wish my mate from the Isle of Man was with me. I'd have shown her that we have the equal of the Mountain Course across the water!!
From there, and I reckon this was the best part, onto the A40 to Abergavenny. This road, about 16 miles is phenomenal. Great road surface, fast straights and bends that just go on and on. Twice I over cooked it and had the back wheel twitching.
