Cambourne to: Helston
Came upon this road whilst on holiday... is only short but has the best section of two successive 'S' bends I have ever seen!! Smooth (ish) tarmac but more importantly you have full vision through the section and it rules! Try it! The rest of the road's not bad either...
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.
Mitchelstown to: Mitchelstown
Head out the ballyporeen road, go straight through toward's cloheen and onto Ard Finnan. From here go over the bridge and take the middle road up the hill and onto cahair. Turn left at the square in cahair and go past the castle and take the first left toward's cloheen. Into Cloheen and take the road over the Vee into Lizmore. Take the tallow road and then onto Castlelyon's and into Fermoy, Take the main cork dublin road from fermoy to mitchelstown for some very high speed bend's. This route is about 70 miles in total with s bend's mountain road's 90 degree drop off's and hairpins, biker's paradise. The surface is mixed with smooth and rough on the route. Watch for cops bewteen Fermoy and mitchelstown, other than that nail it.
Rye to: Brenzett
A great road in good condition with lots of smooth corners. Can be fairly busy in the summer months due to tourist traffic.
