Mablethorpe to: Cleethorpes & back
Not very long but nice & twisty through a couple of villages,not many cars & no speed traps, (at least not on last trip). When you arrive in Cleethorpes find the A46 out towards Lincoln, you will come accross the A18, turn left towards Louth (another nice road) this will eventually bring you out on the A16 at Ludborough, turn right towards Louth and go round the by-pass and either take the A16 down towards Skegness for fast sweeping bends or go straight on round the by-pass and take the A157 back towards Maltby Le Marsh & Mablethorpe for another tight & twisty road.
Brentwood to: Saffron Walden
Mobile cameras througout this area now. Watch your speed in the villages and on the side roads. Plod everywhere it seems as Essex are cracking down on us. Campaign to rid area of speeding bikes apparently.
Exeter to: Back to Exeter
Lovely road! 377 is 50-odd miles of twisty heaven, though surface is starting to go in places. Record is about 25 minutes !! However constant ton-plus easily poss. Narrow-ish road follows the river. Speed limits starting to pop up in stupid places, but few appearances from local Bill make these optional. Coming into Barnstaple take the (boring) A361 to Bideford - watch for Rozzers as they love this road - through the town, then join onto the A386 to Torrington (watch for some nastily sharp corners) - onto the B3220 through Beaford/Winkleigh - nice fast roads, and back onto the A377 about 15 miles before Exeter. Good route for a Sunday blast. Good weather normally brings a fair few bikers along the A377. note: Summer brings loads of tourists down here, mincing along at 20mph with their caravans. Hope you enjoy it. We have, for the last 6 years.
Alton to: Basingstoke
Ah the infamous A339. The site of several deaths lately. It's a great, technical road with a good surface, but beware. High speed corners + miscalculation = risk of severe trauma/death. If you want to do it, ride the road several times up and down below the national limit. Look for the junctions, look for cops, look for crap on the road, look out for squids riding it too: they sometimes cross the centreline oncoming. When you're sure, try it out, it's a lot of fun: but don't wind up in the Newspaper.
