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.
THETFORD to: DISS
Norfrolk isn't blessed with the best biking roads in the country but the Thetford to Diss road is one of the better ones. Smooth surface some very fast sweeping bends plenty of overtaking opportunitties even through some of the bends. Thetford to Watton A1075 is also very good infact I find it impossible to ride either of these roads slowly The bonus is neither have cameras
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...
Nuneaton to: M42
A good summer Sunday run this one (We go from Nuneaton) Out of Nuneation past the Graziers Pub, the first couple of miles to the A5 are a good warm up, and decides who's leading and chasing. Across the A5 and its brain out time! Past Fenny Drayton village watch out for the cross roads, then nail it into the Drayton bends. Get 'um right and you'll go over the rise to Sibson like rocket! Fast downhill sweepers now till the village (Slow it through the vallage as theres a turning on the left - 2 bike deaths in as many years) Once past, knock it down and go, the lazy 's' bends out of the village are sweet but be on your guard for the junction at the top of the hill. It's downhill again then with a really fast right, left, right sweep onto the Twycross straight (Top speed duel time). Through the village and there is a straight, bend, straight section till you get to a 90deg right by the zoo entrance thats a bit of a pig (I always go in too fast). Then its on the gas again (note junction on right hand side), careful for sidewinds as this bit is pretty exposed, and down into the right hand sweeper that takes you into Appleby Parva. It's a sprint then to the M42 island. Knee down round it and back the way you came, turning left at the junction just before the zoo. down to the Moore's arms in Norton Juxta Twycross, for a drink, and a chat with the others doing the same run! Then its back to Nuneaton to the Graziers for stories of heroics and soiled skids!! - See you in the summer
