Porthmadog to: Cross foxes
You name it it's got it small narrow lanes to open straights, very good for the wake me up ride, try this at four in the morning on a midsummer outing. Be sure your bike is up for it. Mind you do not forget we are all Christians and we do not break the law Gods especially.
Saxmundham to: Circular route
Turn off the A12 onto to B1119 towards Framlingham. This is a very twisty road with lots of tight corners to start with and opening up a little (getting faster) towards Framlingham. From Fram take the B1116 towards Dennington. Beware of the sharp 90 degree bends but enjoy the hump back bridge ! At Dennington go straight accross the staggered junction (over the A1120 - also a good road) and continue on the B1116 this section is a little bumpy for bikes of a nervous disposition. After 3-4 miles turn right towards Halesworth on the B1117. This road is great fun, especially the section around Heveningham Hall. The villages around here will make you think your bike is a time machine but beware of tractors, horses and various crap on the road, some of the junctions can be a bit gravelly. Halesworth is a bit dull so just pass straight through and make your way to the A12 at Blythburgh. Turn south and then Turn left immediatly after the White Hart pub (B1125). Follow this road all the way down to Leiston. From here you can either turn left towards Saxmundham and back to where you started or pass through and go to Thorpeness and its Biker friendly tea shops. Alternatively head further south past Snape Maltings and have some fun on the roads around Tunstall and Rendlesham Forests. Be warned, all the villages in Suffolk have 30mph limits and lots of places for the Police to hide, so knock it off when passing through.
A11 to: Fakenham
If you join the A1065 at the Mildenhall, Thetford round-about and head north towards Swaffam. A lovely route that goes on for about 35 miles, twisties, straights (160Mph+ on a ZZ-R600) and nice little lips of round-abouts. There are a few police, though they're not too bright and tend to wait in very slow sections where you are well under the 60MPh limit. Once at Fakenham, you can either go left to King Lynne (on the fast A148) or right to Norwich also on the A148.
London to: Salcombe
Come out of London on M3 join A303 , long sweeping bends, v.fast straights with some gatso's clearly signposted, loads of round-a-bouts to surf all really good quality surface with little traffic, even on Bank Holiday weekend. Stop off at Stonehenge for a half way smoke then onto Exeter. Join A38 and come off at any number of junctions for last 20 miles to Salcombe on tight technical twisties finish at Kings Arms.
