Tain to: Thurso
Fast road (most 100+) with lots of different corners, off camber, slow tight and wide sweepers. From Latheron Wheel to Thurso is seriously quick, but a bit bumpy, get used to the front wheel hoisting crossed up!. Watch your speed in the little towns. No cameras but the chance of unmarked cars, red saab 9000, silver omega and a dark volvo. Great roads to the west or just go back down again. each way is about 80 miles.
Harlow to: Finchingfield
The A414 from Harlow to Chipping Ongar has some good bends but a few double white lines. At the Four Wantz roundabout (BP garage) turn left onto the B184 to Great Dunmow, when you get to the T junction after about 7 miles turn right on to the A1060 Chelmsford. Then after about a mile turn left back onto the B184. Go through Great Dunmow High street, it's a bit narrow but loud pipes do sound good. As you leave Dunmow turn right onto the B1057, which is on a left hand corner. This road will take you all the way to Finchingfield. The road surfaces are all pretty good and there are some good corner combinations with a left hander that just gets tighter and tighter between Dunmow and Finchingfield. When you get there, there is a good biker friendly pub on a big green that gets really busy in the summer.
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.
Coventry to: Rugby
Best on Sundays and avoid rush hour at all costs. Combination of sweeping very fast corners and tighter bends perfect knee sliding territory!
