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.
Swindon, Wiltshire to: Devizes, Wiltshire
Sorry can't remember road number but theres only on road from Swindon to Devizes. Leave Swindon via Old Town follow signs for Wroughton > then Avebury (yes this route goes through biker heaven) - good pub also attracts a good crowd on most summer sundays, once out of Wroughton its a staight & twisty road down the Avebury through the S bend and onward to the only roundabout then a fast (very fast) run into Devizes...... Be warned Devizes is the HQ of the County plod... many cars but always off somewhere else so eyes peeled and keep your head they are after someone else. Well most of the time. It has to be the ballsist ride to hammer into the mouth of the plod at flat chat. Oh yeh. Fun too.
Lewes to: Newhaven
Take the A 27 from Lewes signposted Eastbourne after level crossing take 2nd exit off roundabout signposted Nehaven and Seaford.Take it easy for ist right hander (Cow's deposits on road)then accelerate hard onto straight before left then right combination...careful artics always turn over here.Continue on for about 4 miles of very fast A road with lots of challenging bends.Road is very popular with bikers and early sunday morning the silence is often broken by a Ducati or two on full chat.....Get to Newhaven ...have breakfast and take the road back,Make sure you do it early in the am before it fills up with trucks and traffic for the ferry.
MACCLESFIELD to: BUXTON
PROBABLY THE MOST DEMANDING ROAD IN THE UK. APPROX 10MLS OF QUALITY A ROAD. LOADS OF BENDS AND UNDULATIONS. OFF CAMBER BENDS A PLENTY. SUNDAYS IN SUMMER ARE MAD. IF YOU SURVIVE GO THROUGH BUXTON ON THE A6 THROUGH BAKEWELL TO MATLOCK BATH. LOADS OF BIKERS MEET THERE ALL THROUGH THE SUMMER. COME AND AVE A GO IF YOU THINK YER ARD ENOUGH. SEE YOU THERE.
