A252

Billingshurst to: Petersfield

Huge variety - lots of sweeps, mixed surfaces. Watch out for plods in the villages. Watch out for 30mph camera on way into Billingshurst if coming from North. Road sweeps east from B,hurst through a small village. Crap until then. Once out of village, follow twisties through the forest on a great surface. Twisties for around 7 miles including a real bastard right hander. Last mile and a half before Petworth is totally straight. Time to see if the bike will do 60mph (honest officer). Go through Petworth slowly (there's no way you can do it quickly!!) Once out on the 252 again there's a long sweeping wide road where you can really pan it. Watch out for nasty twists in Cowdray Park.....it looks flat but the contours can throw you wide. More of the same until Petersfield. Usual Surrey rules apply.....30 thru the towns (or get 'plodded') and watch out for crap on the roads. Get to Petersfield. Get a drink. Grin a lot.


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.


A82

Ballock to: Lochgilphead

Ok.......first off I only ride a FZR400RR so this would be even better on a 'real' bike! =) Starting at Ballock its a 60mph road with plenty of cars to overtake ( and scare ) on the edge of Loch Lomand.........I'd recommend a quick detoir into Luss (where Take the High road is filmed!)......nothing beats firing up the small main street in a first gear wheelie to piss off all the old biddies!
