Postcombe to: West Wycombe
Set off from the England's Rose pub in Postcombe, a popular bikers' gathering point at the weekend that does decent fry-ups. Head east along the A40 and do a quick dog-leg right-left across the B4009 (another good road). The next couple of miles is called Aston Hill and is fast, twisty, uphill and, in this direction, two lanes. Knee-down heaven, and with good views. Once through Stokenchurch, the road changes into fast sweepers where silly speeds are possible thanks to nearly all the traffic being on the adjacent M40.
After you get to West Wycombe, you can head back and do it again, although somehow it's less fun going this way. better to head back via Princes Risborough and Thame on the A4010, A4129, B4012. You'll need another fry-up by then.
haslingden to: haslingden
First of all you need to get to Barrowford(M65 j13).follow the A682 to Gisburn.Turn right through the village,(slowly), then a left, still A682 towards Long Preston.Turn left onto the A65 for about 4 miles,then turn right at the roundabout into Settle.Go through settle and turn right onto B6479 towards Hawes.Keep going until you reach a t junction at the Ribble head via duct.Turn right towards Hawes.If you wish you can stop at the cafe for a brew or turn left onto the A684 towards Sedbergh.Slowly through the village then bear left onto the A683 towards Kirby Lonsdale(Devils Bridge).Stop again for another brew.Then from the bridge its left onto the A65 and back towards Long Preston.Turn right there and return to haslingden or where ever ,the same route as you came.THIS route can be bad for the police so be aware.the ride is about 130miles long of a mixture of fast sweepers to slow corners.all in all the best ride in the country.
Ashbourne to: Cowers Lane
The great things about this road is there little traffic and no feds.Plus it's mix of tight bends, sweepers, blind crests and flat out straights.Once you get to the traffic lights at Cowers Lane,turn left on to the Wirksworth road (B5023)which is more of the same and a much better route if you are going to Matlock.
Halton/Aylesbury to: M25 Junction (Near Hemel Hempstead)
For a fast blast down 11 miles of dual carrage way with some nice long sweepers this road is a hoot. There are only 3 or 4 juntions on the whole stretch, with a handy drive-in McDonalds placed on 2nd or 3rd one (coming from Aylesbury).
