Abbots Bromley to: Uttoxeter
Ups And Downs, good surface, loads of twistys, adverse cambers, in and out of woodland, Will realy test your abilitys, start in Abbots Bromley, pretty little village with loads of character, if you can do it in less than 8 mins you are going miles too fast!
Bridgnorth to: Ludlow
Nice route through rolling countryside. Road surface a bit variable. Probably a bit too narrow and twisty for really fast riding, but still challenging and fun.
Galashiels to: Edinburgh
Lots of tight bends, lots of sweeping corners, lots of straights which guarantees you can pass the caravan club member of the year. I had great fun travelling this route. No speed cameras on this section (that I can recall) and the road surface is pretty good all round with the the high grip surface on the tight corners.
Better still is if you travel south on this route, join the A68 a few miles East of Melrose and head south towards Cambo. If you're not crazy you can have great fun through the borders but beware of the speed cameras. There are no speed cameras once you get into England but be cautious of the blind summits, there have been fatalities on this road at some of these points (no motorcycles that I've heard of). Other than that champion.
Still more fun if you turn off the A68 onto the A696 taking the exit for Otterburn, take it slow through Otterburn then let rip to Morpeth.
Kibworth to: Uppingham & Back
Start at the Rose & Crown Pub in Kibworth Harcourt, point your bike towards Market Harborough and take the first left (200yds) end of the road go left then first right. Nice country road, twisty and fast, watch out for tractors and horses! Follow road to the end then go left towards Melton Mowbray. Faster country road with nice surface. 4 Miles turn right on the A47 towards Uppingham. Head down here and ride like the possesed. First roundabout is about 10 miles along A47, turn right towards Uppingham, failure to get knee burnt here results in an instant failure!! Take your time through Uppingham, lots of pedestrians, and for some reason they like to jump out in front of you! Straight through the lights, down the hill, private school area, take your time, when you reach the top of the other side GLF. Plenty of bends, nice road surface, great view of Eyebrook Res'r. Head towards Corby. Watch out for the traffice lights over narrow bridge, easy to miss as the adrenalin is still pumping. After the lights is the mad mile (you will know when you see it) dead straight and top speed here was 150 (so I heard). Slow throught Rockingham and head towards Market Harborough. The Roundabout before Harborough gives you the option of mad bypass speed or show of the bike throught Market Harborough, looking in the shop window and thinking wow I look good. A6 towards Kibworth and hey presto your back where you started from with a stupid smile on your face.... I ride the CBR600F.... Nice for the journey
