A 41

Tong to: Whitchurch

31 miles of smiles. Watch out for parked Jam Sandwiches as one approaches Junction 3 of the M54, they will sometimes follow motorcycles. This is a very fast, well-surfaced, and varied route. A mix of dead-straight dual carriageways where one can easily reach 150mph (allegedly!!), taxing bends both dead-slow and dead-fast. Avoid during the week, as it is full of commercial traffic, but at 6am on a summer's Sunday there is no better place to worship.


A500

Hough, Nantwhich,Crewe - Eastwards to: Junction 16 on the M6

A new digital camera system is being tested (hidded between the bridges) travelling east towards the M6 from Crewe and Nantwhich Shavington areas. Slow down- The new system takes a perfect picture every time.


B1038, B1052/1061

Buntingford to: Newmarket

Turn off the A10 at Buntingford on to B1038 - Although this route is peppered with villages there are some opportunities to go really fast in between. Sometimes a bit mucky but a good mixture of lefts and rights, up and downhill corners and straights. At Newport turn left briefly onto B1383 and then turn right onto B1052 (Saffron Walden) and follow this road all the way to Linton. This section has some great moments with some knee down opportunities and one bit which has some smooth and fast snaking with open view of the road ahead (getting through Saffron Walden can be tricky - TAKE SIGNS TO TOWN CENTRE PAST TWO MINI ROUNDABOUTS. WHEN YOU GET TO TRAFFIC LIGHTS AT TOWN CENTRE, TURN RIGHT AND THEN FOLLOW ROAD STRAIGHT ON). At Linton follow signs for Balsham. Once through Linton its a short run to Balsham which is the living shit if you like it fast,bumpy and safely tankslappy. Follow B1052 through Balsham (slowly, I know people who live there) and stay on the same road all the way to Newmarket where, at some point, it will have miraculously cahnged into the B1061. This section has better Tarmac than the previous roads and some lovely corners but it also boasts the only speed cameras I am aware of on this route.


A422

Stratford to: Banbury

!7 miles of pure bikeing joy. After a visit to the waterside in Straford on a Sunday give this usually traffic free road a go. Best bit is the fast up hill left followed by slow steep uphill right at sunrise hill, get your speed and gears right and this is a very rewarding combination. The rest of the route is mostly fast sweepers but there are some slower ones and some are bumpy. Unfortunatly there can be the usual junk associated with farms and tractors after wet weather. Take care through the villages on this route. Otherwise enjoy.
