B4000

Shrivenham to: Lambourn

Nice quiet B road, open, pretty good surface, good bends, glorious on a good day.


A9

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.


A4& B4192

Newbury to: Swindon

Starting from Newbury take the A4 to Hungerford. The road can be busy but there are many wonderful overtaking opportunities, wide and with good vision. Leave Hungerford on the A4 towards Marlborough but quickly turn right onto the B4192. I did this on a Saturday at 11am and there was very little traffic, just some great straights, a couple of very pretty villages and enough bends to satisfy those much braver than me. The only trouble is you end up in Swindon but you can then go up to Faringdon on the A420, to Wantage on the A417 and then back to Newbury via the B4494, a great road. The whole journey is about 45 miles with lots of stopping off places.


B827

Braco to: Comrie

This is a fine little stretch of high level(ie up in the moors) twisty stuff. It can be got to from the A9 just N of Dunblane. It climbs quickly up the side of a pleasant strath before hitting a series of bends and straights. Watch out for a couple of narrow bridges on near 90 degree bends, and also the carriage way is pretty narrow and sometimes no road markings, most of the way. There is a terrific open view much of the time, so easy to spot traffic despite the twisties. A great set of switchbacks drops you down into the lower ground outside Comrie. Gas up there if you need to. For an alternative return route, head along the A85 thru St Fillans and a lochside blast past Loch Earn to join the always entertaining A 84 at Lochearnhead. Snoot presence is minimal, if present at all, except perhaps in the 2 main villages.
