Singleton(off A583 from M55) to: South Shore Blackpool
V twisty, V fast, V fun.
Box Hill to: Further South
The section of the A24 from Capel to Horsham is notoriously scabby and poorly surfaced, which is fine if you want a challenge. HOwever there is serious local fury about it at the moment and any of the frequent accidents (car or bike) make (local) headline news. There is going to be resurfacing and re-engineering of this section in a few months, so wait. The alternative route is along the A29 (Roman Stane Street) which is a sublime road. Please resist the temptation to perfect your rolling mile speed tests along the Ockley straight, as you'll probably run into my mum coming out of the hairdressers. Or someone coming out of one of the four pubs- all good. Just down the road (Signs to Okewood Hill) is the Punchbowl, an excellent pub. The A29 gives good access to the As 281 and 272, both lovely. Yours Will (Is he local, Tubs?)
Guildford to: Winchester
This is not really a scratching road - it just very fast, mostly dual carriageway, it you are making it to the South Coast from London it is a lot more fun than the M3 - and for you ZZR1100 guys - it is perfect. You could hang a left at Chawton and take the A32 to Fareham - not bad at all.
Caersws to: Circular route via Aberystwyth
Seeing is believing, this route must be the ultimate bikers dream, It will test your skills to the limit. (watch out for the sheep)
Starting at Caersws, head south towards Llanidloes (avoid the town via the bypass) and take the A44 at Llangurig for Aberystwyth, This part of the trip will take your breath away. After your break at Aberystwyth beach head for Machynlleth on the A487. At Machynlleth turn right at the town clock onto the A489, then a right turn at Cemmaes Road rejoining the A470 back to Caersws.
