Northampton to: Bedford
Fast well surfaced road, with fast sweeping bends and not too much traffic - worth trying
Bridgnorth to: Ludlow
Nice route through rolling countryside. Road surface a bit variable. Probably a bit too narrow and twisty for really fast riding, but still challenging and fun.
Billingshurst to: Petersfield
Huge variety - lots of sweeps, mixed surfaces. Watch out for plods in the villages. Watch out for 30mph camera on way into Billingshurst if coming from North. Road sweeps east from B,hurst through a small village. Crap until then. Once out of village, follow twisties through the forest on a great surface. Twisties for around 7 miles including a real bastard right hander. Last mile and a half before Petworth is totally straight. Time to see if the bike will do 60mph (honest officer). Go through Petworth slowly (there's no way you can do it quickly!!) Once out on the 252 again there's a long sweeping wide road where you can really pan it. Watch out for nasty twists in Cowdray Park.....it looks flat but the contours can throw you wide. More of the same until Petersfield. Usual Surrey rules apply.....30 thru the towns (or get 'plodded') and watch out for crap on the roads. Get to Petersfield. Get a drink. Grin a lot.
MINEHEAD to: LYNMOUTH
North Devon coast road with spectacular views and a 1 in 4 hill at Porlock (take East to West to upwards).
