Winchester to: Haywards Heath
Lots of good twisty-windy and good clear viz straights for the speed merchs. Many good pubs along the route-esp in towns, but check all the small tributary roads for small local village pubs. You be in deepest ruralia and the beer/food is good....but of course no drinking!
Helmsley to: Scarborough
Helmsley is a market town lying on the A170 from Thirsk to Scarborough. The road is mostly 60 limit, quiet and predominantly plod free, road surface is smooth and sticky. Plenty glorious fast sweepers and good straights. Great scenery (if you get time to look). Not too many villages along the way so fairly hazard free. Helmsley market place is a locally renowned gathering point for all walks of biker on summer weekends (mainly sunday afternoons) and theres always loads of bikes on the Scarborough sea front at the other end of the journey. Plenty alternative routes if you fancy a change on the way back. That corner of North Yorkshire is packed with good biking roads other than this, explore!
Llandrindod Wells to: Newtown
A terrific road set in beautiful Welsh countryside. A combination of wide sweeping bends and tight demanding hairpins. Not recommended for Harley's or other fat boys.!
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.
