Oxford. to: Abingdon.
So you Like SPEED and CORNERS So try my Gatzo Free Zone.
Take the B4044 out of Oxford (SW). Once you pass under the A420 underpass the fun begins. National speed limit light left hander80mmph + harder right 75mph hard left with over banding 70mph. Down the rise to long staright 120mph at end brake to 40 mph zone in Farmoor Village. straight across mini roundabout down 1/4 mile striaght out of village then National liniit from tress and bends Right then left then hard Right left left to toll bridge(section 60-80 mph). Toll free for bikes after bridge left at rounadabout just before Eynsham. Follow road around to next roundabout (80-90mph) watch for cars on right entering the round about at speed. Left at round about and 1/2 mile straight ((150mph+) with sharp left hander at end
Watch the first left hander as the second right hander even sharper follows immeadiatley with no braking between. Do these bends at over 30mph and become knee scraping GOD. Follow road out of bends to left hander with drain cover on exit. Then a 90 drgree left hander 30mmph. On through the next village To rounabout now the fun really begins. Left through Stantonhardcourt No 30 mph signs as you will scraping pegs at 35mph in this lovelly road. Follow out of village then take thrid left. The section of road you just did is the best bit of biking to be had. You will be lucky to break the speed limit in most places the bends are mind numming one set after the other. Your ride this all day and still s**t youseft.
West Meon to: A31
Cant believe I have not seen this stretch of road on this site yet ! Fairly short stretch of road about 10 miles long but what a 10 miles. Loads of bikers meet here at the crossroads of the A32 and A272 by the Little Chef restaurant. First few miles of A272 from the A32 is the best. Really fast, really twisty open coutry roads with loads of Vis. Not many junctions off the road so you can hammer it with peace of mind (is there such a thing). Follow A272 all the way to A31 junction which is a roundabout. Get your knee down round the roundabout and then straight back onto the A272 again back to the Little Chef on the A32. About a 10 minute ride but unmissable if you are travelling down the A32
Cambridge to: Ipswich
Leave Cambridge via Fulbourn, over the obligatory sprint up past the Gogs and head towards Haverhill down the A1307. Follow the road to Clare and then Sudbury. Nice road when out of the towns. Once out of Sudbury, head towards Colchester and take the left turn towards Hadleigh down the A1071 - this road is a corker - fast corners, slow corners, long corners, straights, very little police presence that I've noticed, and very few places for them to hide. Follow that to Ipswich, realise how crap Ipswich is and head back to Cambridge... Also some lovely scenery...so I've heard. Had a great race on my CBR6 against a TDM850 - v. quick out of corners. Can't _wait_ to take my new R1 down there...
low road to: high road
Ok i know this site is dedicated to scratching and for me a blast on my bike can be for a number of different reasons so if you want a selection of different types of road then i can reckomend the highlands of scotland.Ok so the road surfaces arn't always the best,look out for sheep,deer and grit on the roads as well as caravans in the tourist season.However even in the tourist season the traffic levels are nowhere near that of the south.IE out of the highlands :)And for you foreigners ie,English,Welsh and Irish :) then if you get as far north as Inverness then the fun is only starting.Take the road to Ullapool and up round Cape Wrath past Dounreay to Wick and then south to Inverness.The scenery is awsome,the journey is a test of skill and endurance and there are some REALLY good corners to get your knee down as well as some terrific straights and some majestic view points which will take your breath away..When you get back to inverness get a B&B and in the morning do the trip again.:) The only real bad point is the weather.Be prepared to get out the waterproofs.It is still worth it though.GET NORTH NOW.
