Bedford thru Higham Ferrers to: back to Bedford
Head north from Bedford on the A6, through Clapham (passing the Fox & Hounds, where the Fox MCC is based! Go here for more info: http://people.goplay.com/fox&hounds). Head up the A6 to Higham Ferrers (nice un fast) then do a right onto the B645 following the sign to St Neots (nice un bendy) then after going through Kimbolton look out for the B660 a way down on your right. This takes you back to Bedford with a huge grin on your face. COME TO THE FOX MCC !!!
Northampton to: Bedford
Fast well surfaced road, with fast sweeping bends and not too much traffic - worth trying
Creagan to: Creagan
The A828 used to take a detour all the way around Loch Creran until a bridge was built on the coast. This has left a six mile oxbow of old A-road abandoned with only one house on it and virtually no traffic whatsoever. And it is the most amazing bit of road, hugging the loch it is a never ending series of bends, sweepers, switch backs and blind rises. Going north, pass over the new bridge and keep your eyes open for a small sign saying local traffic only. The is the entrance to the Creaganring. Have fun.
Theale to: Christened Kneesliders
Head North East from Theale on the A4 and just before you get to Junction 12 of the M4 you'll come across a great, on-camber roundabout with a clear view of traffic from all directions. Warm up here but this one can be quite busy so take the right exit off and you'll find yourself at an Industrial Estate with two linked roundabouts which are perfect for first-time sliders. On a Sunday there is almost no traffic there, we saw three cars there in half an hour, one of which was a security patrol who seemed more than willing to turn a blind eye...
