Spalding to: Melton Mowbray
Almost worth moving to East Anglia so you can blast to Donington. From the A16/A1073 crossroads turn towards Spalding, then left over a bridge and right at the petrol station (easy to miss this turn). 30 limit for a mile or so, then left at the t-junction. This soon becomes a 50 limit, then you're out over the fens. Watch out for the sharp r/h bend at Pode Hole, then fast and staight to Pinchbeck, over the humpback bridge and sharp left. Some beautiful twisties and straight-line stuff, another 90 right at Twenty then flat, fast and bumpy all the way into Bourne. Watch out for some VERY deep dykes both sides of the road. Straight across the lights at Bourne and watch out for speed traps on the slight rise out of the village. Out of the limit and sharp right and up hill through some woods then a long downhill striaght, followed by some lovely twists before the 90 right into Edenham. The speed limit here has been altered so watch it, another popular spot for 'hairdryers'. A short blast of twists with a slight rise and fall then the two rights and 90 left into Grimthorpe, 40 limit. The 90 right as you leave the village is VERY steep uphill, and you can power on early as the speed limit ends there. A set of glorious twists and striaghts past Grimthorpe Castle, then a 90 right and GO FOR IT all the way to Corby Glen. Fast, wide sweeps and few juctions to worry about. Corby Glen is now 30 limit so beware. Up the hill out of Corby Glen, out of the limit past the Grantham turn (another great road), then right, downhill and left under the railway bridge. Then it's fast and twisty all the way to Colsterworth and the A1, just a couple of rights to watch out for. Cross the A1, 30 through Colsterworth then flat to Stainby (30). Long straight out of Stainby with a tricky right kink then striaght to Buckminster. 30 through here then it's pure Joey Dunlop all the way to Melton, with just three very short 30 limits through villages, all with very sharp entries and exits. For a change, coming back from Melton use the A606 to Oakham, past Rutland Water and on to Stamford. Much wider and smoother, therefor faster, but not so much fun in my opinion. And if you're not knackered after that, you weren't trying hard enough! Cheers and be safe.
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.
Norwich to: Great Yarmouth
A plesent ride from Norwich to Great Yarmouth on a Friday evening ending at the White Swan Pub Whiteswan. This road is part of the ring road around Norwich, going out through the countryside ( watch out for the 50MPH dual carriageway. Turn right onto the Acle Straight about 8 miles before Yarmouth. This is single carriageway but has 2 straight sections each at least 3 miles long. Straight over the first roundabout, you will see the pub on your left as you go over the river bridge.
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.
