ALTON to: BASINGSTOKE
on to the B3400 Basingstoke to Andover make a nice through route returning via the lovely A3057 Andover to Southampton through the Test Valley.
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.
Thatcham to: Theale
Not a great road but a useful alternative to the A4 when its busy (which is to say most of the time). Start from Harts Hill Road at the east end of Thatcham then follow road through Upper Bucklebury, Chapel Row and Southend. After about 8 miles you come to a T-junction. Turn right, then right again at the A340 to take you back on to the A4. Although unclassified, its fast and has many overtaking opportunities. But beware animals and hidden side turnings - take care.
Southport to: Preston
i have only been riding for 2 years on my Yammi RXS-100 but i have aquired a bit of road expirience so here is the best route i have found. at a total of 17 miles it is a comfortable afternoon ride with some fast roads (you ppl may be able to appritiate this more as you probably all have bigger bikes than me lol) no speed cameras as i can remember apart from one as you come into preston itself. you wont notice it until its too late as anyone can tell you the downward gradient into main preston is quite conspicuous until you are actually on it :) by the way, just wanted to say hi to all you bikers out there. im probably guaranteed to meet atleast one of you in my lifetime as i am bike mad :) later all Steve Bailey
