Perth to: Aberdeen
For all rider's who like me, have experienced the EDINBURGH to MOFAT run and the MOFAT to SELKIRK run this is one not to be missed!!!!!! head for Perth (if like me coming from EDINBURGH use M90) once you arrive in perth fill up! (next stop 70miles) Then head for sign's directing you to DEESIDE TOURIST ROUTE TO ABERDEEN follow this road carfuly for about 15 miles, this get's you past all the small villages and town's outside PERTH you'll know when the route starts because there's an iron bridge you have to cross that's single track. After this point the road become's F*!ing brill it's full of fast bend's huge straights and section's of tight twistie's the trip up over Glen Shie is breath taking (FUCK SENIC VIEWS JUST NAIL IT). At Braemar it' time to fill up, and carry on to Aberdeen (more brilliant roads) Police tend to stay around small villages so if you stick to 30MPH aproaching small villages you'll be OK and so will every one else in the future Have fun and keep it rubber side down!!
Builth Wells to: Trawsfynydd & Beyond
Fast, Fast, Fast and Very quick in some places. Long sweeping bends with good visibility. Gatsos at Llandrindod Wells. Nice sweeping hill road from Dinas Mawddwy to Dolgellau. Mid Wales' best roads and not a Policeman in sight ....Thank God
cheriton to: winchester
a beautiful twisty road that need's some care on, I ride this road to go to work every day. there are several things you need to be aware of, thre police sit on the brough of the hill from the kilmeston crossroads(difficult to see). watch for the cheriton crossroads morans pull out from noware, then the long straight there are two sites where the police hide,one at the bottom and one at the top-they are easy to see going to winchester-not on the way back! the next straight you come to,you have time to see them, they hide down a farm track. Have also seen them on chessfoothead,the last two bends are brilliant,enjoy.
Northallerton to: Northallerton
The beauty of this route is that it can be started / finished anywhere round it. Its about 70 miles long (or round !). Leave Northallerton on the A168 heading south toward Thirsk. Once you're out of Northallerton, loads of long straights with some great sweeping corners. Follow the road signs into Thirsk, turning left at the r/about, signposted A170 toward Scarborough. Great approach road to 1 in 4 Sutton Bank climb. Watch out for the sharp right hander at the top. Very easy to get carried away blasting to the top ! Cafe & parking at the top. Great smooth roads accross the top, BUT watch out for Plod. Very easy to go very fast on this section (as if !). Great long downhill section with a sharp left hander at the bottom.
Into Helmsley. Loads of Cafe's & Pubs to take your pick from. Then the best bit. From Helmsley, head along the B1257 toward Stokesley. Absolutely brilliant stretch of road. Watch out for the off camber right hander at the bottom of Bilsdale Bank, near to the old red telephone box. But BEWARE, this section of road is regularly quite heavily Policed (especially at weekends) with Plod in all manner of disguises, carrying all sorts of unfriendly Biker 'weaponary'! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !
Stop off at the Bay Horse at Great Broughton. Great Biker friendly country pub. Carry on thro' Great Broughton down to the r/about. Take the 2nd turn off into Stokesley. Left at the next r/about. Great Fish & Chip shop on the right as you enter Stokesley. Thro' Stokesley following the road signs for Hutton Rudby. Just out of Stokesley, look for the 1st right turn opposite a Farm & head towards Seamer. Great 'B' road which is usually quite quiet. Thro' Seamer & another village, Hilton, until you reach the A1044. You'll know you're in the right place cos' the Fox Covert Pub is directly in front of you (another excuse to stop ?). Turn left onto the A1044 heading towards Yarm. Down & up Leven Bank until you reach a r/about. Straight on heading west on the B1264. Lots of straights, twists & turns. Another excellent section. Turn left at the 'T' junction at the end, heading back towards Northallerton on the A167. Enjoy ......
