Findon, West Susse to: xClapham, West Sussex
OK. Use the Map finder linky thing at the top of this page to find the road as it doesn't have a road number. It is a 'B' road called Long Furlong whic runs between 2 villages in West Sussex called Findon and Clapham and vice-versa. There are NO SPEED CAMERA'S, there are NO HIDDEN POLICEMEN/WOMEN and there are NO POTHOLES. It is a really nice fast road but if it is wet, lack of cambering causes parts to flood :o( There are 2 long sweeping bends to begin with going in both directions, made especially for bikers who want to have even amounts of scraping on their sparkies >:o) Later on there is a very tight chicane (not spelt right) and when the road finishes it takes you out onto the main 'A' road which can take you to either Arundel or speed camera/piggie heaven (Brighton). At an average speed of 60mph this road takes about 10 minutes. ENJOY!!!
Yeovil to: Bridgwater
20 odd miles of zero police, v fast sweepers, tight sections and wheelie straights and superb 140 mph bridge jump (grip the tank with your knees and you\'ll see) make this a little gem that I need to share, as I hardly ever get to race anyone along it. Local boys know. Check it out.
A1071 Hadleigh to: Whatfield
If you like the A1071 a corker from start to finish, be sure to check out the Hadleigh to Whatfield road. Turn of the A1071 half way around the Hadleigh bypass. First you come up a snaking s hill and then you get two good pegging it down opportunities followed by a short straight and then another couple of good corners.Go through Whatfield branch of to the right nearing the end of the village. Even though this is a by road it has several tight corners and short straights. Best at the start of the year when the crops are low.
Bedford to: Somewhere near Peterborough (A1)
I first rode this little blinder back in 1986 when I passed my bike test and have never tired of it. Coming out of Bedford past the Golf centre on your right there is nearly always a speed trap, so take it easy until you see the G.L.F (go like f..k) sign. You start off with a tight right hander and then swoop downhill- watch for blind car drivers at the jct at the bottom of the hill. This road consists of many 90 deg. bends but all are visible and the land is mainly undulating. Because of these it is a cracking place to learn how to get your knee down. In one of the tiny villages there is a primary school right by the side of the road so PLEASE keep your speed down thru there folks. When you reach the T- junction at Kimbolton turn left and through Kimbolton itself. Immediately after the village turn right and carry on, the road becoming a litte bumpy in places. Cross over the A14 on the flyover and turn right at the T jct.After Old Weston turn right at first jct (this is easy to miss!) and carry on. Enjoy until the A1 and turn round- the road is very different the other way as some bends have non constant radii!
