Bridgnorth to: Cleobury Mortimer
The best road in Shropshire, and it has just re-opened after part of it collasped into one of the many valleys that it crosses. Either follow it all the way to Cleobury Mortimer or turn off left at Kinlet and follow the B4194 to Bewdley through the Wyre Forest. Probably a little tight & twisty for full on sports bikes, but get yourself a supermoto and you'll be in heaven. Plenty of first gear hairpins & hill crests for the all important wheelies. Enjoy, you will not be disapointed.
Crediton to: Crediton (Devon)
Tyre squaring off??? Use this long afternoon route to grind it back! A3072 from Crediton to Tiverton joining the A396 after Cadbury and a steep decent. Now it's A396 heaven all the way to Dunster on the north coast, barely a momoent with the bike upright. This road is total star quality for views and corners... the only draw back is a very coarse and broken road texture under many of the wooded sections. At Dunster, resist the temptation to turn 180 and ride it back to Tiverton, instead turn West on the A39 for Porlock and its infamous Hill. Road surface is now good and the trip over the top of Exmoor with the sea to your right is a total blast ***watch for dozey drivers exiting picnic areas at 3MPH*** Masses of twisty bits and a tough climb out of Lynton is good value.. More fine corners on the run into Barnstable where things get rather less fun. Avoid the A361 route back to Tiverton as it is the most boring blast ever and popular with the local constabulary.. instead chose The A377, or if you are still craving speedy twists then the the tedious A39 stretch to Bideford leads on to the A386 to Great Torrington and a simple cut back to Crediton Via the A3072. Both the 377 & 386 follow rivers and so include some interesting corners and views.. Loads of traffic at peak season.. mid week in May or September is your best bet. ENJOY.
