Edinburgh to: A1 Junction
Approx 150 yes 150 miles of every situation you can think of, from Dual carriageway to sweeping curves, tight bends, blind summits the lot. I used to do this twice a weekend, Friday and Sunday. (commuting 368 miles to work in Stevenage) Couldn't wait to get off the A1. Just try some of it if it's too long......
Stratford to: Banbury
!7 miles of pure bikeing joy. After a visit to the waterside in Straford on a Sunday give this usually traffic free road a go. Best bit is the fast up hill left followed by slow steep uphill right at sunrise hill, get your speed and gears right and this is a very rewarding combination. The rest of the route is mostly fast sweepers but there are some slower ones and some are bumpy. Unfortunatly there can be the usual junk associated with farms and tractors after wet weather. Take care through the villages on this route. Otherwise enjoy.
POLEGATE to: HASTINGS
The bypass from Polegate to Pevensey is now open. It is a balls out racer road with NO Junctions entering into or on it. From the Polegate Roundabout (A22) TURN towards STONE CROSS (hope it aint an omen) and towards Eastbourne (A259.) Cane your baby for about two miles until the roundabout then straight across towards Bexhill/Hastings. This is a balls out fast road. You will love it....BUT BEWARE...........A BLACK 3 SERIES BMW police CAR WITH LAST PART INDEX OF PTW, OR PTM.....ALL CAMERA'D UP...IF IT GETS YAH..JUST GO FOR IT....ALSO THEY have slow volvo t'5 all marked up and visible...ps..no speed camera's.........best time to enjoy the road sunday mornings...no police until middayish if at all!!!
Penrith to: Alston
I'm probably a little off your beaten track, but I'm sure what I suggest is a GREAT road.....Every Sunday, MANY bikers do this road. It has NO police, NO villages and few/sparse traffic. It climbs to around 600 meters over about 6 miles with 60+ (yes, 62 I think) luscious bends, one REAL hairpin job, but many repeating sections, getting tighter as you ascend.What I mean is.....
