Penrith to: Alston
I'm probably a little off your beaten track, but I'm sure what I suggest is a GREAT road.....Every Sunday, MANY bikers do this road. It has NO police, NO villages and few/sparse traffic. It climbs to around 600 meters over about 6 miles with 60+ (yes, 62 I think) luscious bends, one REAL hairpin job, but many repeating sections, getting tighter as you ascend.What I mean is.....
Ingleton to: Hawes
If you're ever on the way up to Kirby Lonsdale on the A65, take a right at Ingleton. The road is a cracking 18 mile stretch which ends in the little village of Hawes where many bikers stop on a Sunday. Some superb twisty bits. Watch out for the dip in the road. You'll be flying through the air before you see it if you're giving it some!! Need to slow down for the picnic area though, about half way up, as people park their cars either side of the road and then wander across the track. How inconsiderate!!
Perth to: Inverness
This road leads to the finest biking country in the U.K. However, beware of Mr Plod who patrols the A9 in a variety of plain wrappers and sets up nasty speed traps from behind bushes. This leads to tickets by mail..... 60 limit all the way except the few patches of twin track. Find a B&B in Inverness and enjoy the ultimate biking country when it's not pissing down with rain. Fill-up at every opportunity as petrol stations can be pretty rare out of town.
cheriton to: winchester
a beautiful twisty road that need's some care on, I ride this road to go to work every day. there are several things you need to be aware of, thre police sit on the brough of the hill from the kilmeston crossroads(difficult to see). watch for the cheriton crossroads morans pull out from noware, then the long straight there are two sites where the police hide,one at the bottom and one at the top-they are easy to see going to winchester-not on the way back! the next straight you come to,you have time to see them, they hide down a farm track. Have also seen them on chessfoothead,the last two bends are brilliant,enjoy.
