Penrith to: Alston
I'm probably a little off your beaten track, but I'm sure what I suggest is a GREAT road.....Every Sunday, MANY bikers do this road. It has NO police, NO villages and few/sparse traffic. It climbs to around 600 meters over about 6 miles with 60+ (yes, 62 I think) luscious bends, one REAL hairpin job, but many repeating sections, getting tighter as you ascend.What I mean is.....

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.
Alston to: Barnard Castle
30 miles of brilliant road. No Police. No Gatso's. No villages to slow you down. Best enjoyed mid week. Go play ...
