Perth to: Inverness
This road leads to the finest biking country in the U.K. However, beware of Mr Plod who patrols the A9 in a variety of plain wrappers and sets up nasty speed traps from behind bushes. This leads to tickets by mail..... 60 limit all the way except the few patches of twin track. Find a B&B in Inverness and enjoy the ultimate biking country when it's not pissing down with rain. Fill-up at every opportunity as petrol stations can be pretty rare out of town.
Banbury to: Stratford on Avon
This road has a good mix of long straights, twisty bits and several drops and climbs. Not a great surface but that just adds to the excitment - about 28 miles in all and passed through some nice villages with decent pubs. From Banbury follow the signs for Stratford and beware of a couple of Gatsos until u get out of the town. 3-4 miles out of Banbury is Wroxton - keep you speed down (30mph) and stop for a pint or grub (there's a couple of places on the main road and a nice traditional pub in the village centre).Heading towards Edge Hill the road is good for 100+ but as you approach EH itself there are a couple of sharp twisty bends that can catch you out. Watch out for Volvos and Sunday drivers especially in summer. Going down Edge Hill fast is a challenge (hairpin) and if u do wring it's neck watch out for cars crossing over as you come out of the dip at the bottom. Great view over the countryside as u descend by the way.
Futher on towards Pillerton Priors it's twisty and fast. Just before u get there u can do a left on to the Fosse Way and head for Cirencester but that's another story. Cross the A429 (roundabout) and blast through more twisties followed by some sweepers with good overtaking opportunities. As you come into Stratford beware of plod and tourists. Head for the river and on Sunday you'll find a shed load of other bikers have a fag and a choc-ice. Stratford itself is full of the usual tourist tat so it's good to make loads of noise and generally play. There are tons of other good routes around the area and if you want to meet loads of other bikers on a Wednesday night head for the Watermans Arms on the A4177 at Hatton near Warwick (about 10 miles). Enjoy...
Chipping Ongar to: Chelmsford
Mobile cameras througout this area now. Watch your speed in the villages and on the side roads. Plod everywhere it seems as Essex are cracking down on us. Campaign to rid area of speeding bikes apparently.
Hungerford to: Marlborough
11 miles of wide speedy, long curves with a few slow bendy bits. Try it, their are no speed camera's, yet, just watch for plod.
