A814

Arrochar to: Helensburgh

Just an addition to Davy Hannah's comments on the Arrochar road. This has to be one of my favourite sections of road in the world, but and a very big BUT, when on this road the section from Arrochar to Finnart (where there are what appear to be oil storage tanks on the landward side of the road) is the best bit to abuse your suspension' breaks and bottle. After this to the first, or last roundabout, depending on your direction of travel the road surface turns to total shite. With big potholes, water and lots and lots of gravel and, is the favourite section for fatal accidents (the local police and ambulance crews will let you know all about it as they have to visit downed bikers constantly) I was forced off the road at finnart recently by a car on the wrong side of the road part way round a corner, pushing me onto a big patch of gravel. My accident was the third of the day on this section, with one fatality, another guy suffered a broken back and two broken legs and me with severe and extensive soft tissue dammage(a shagged back -the back protector was worth every penny, shagged shoulder, shagged knee and lots of cuts and bruises). Don't let me put you off this section as it is a total blast and I will be back to savour its thrills.


B660

Bedford to: Kimbolton

Just a plea to all you bikers out there. As a resident on this stretch of road, please PLEASE take note of the speed signs. We'd be very grateful if you could take extra care when entering Pertenhall from the south. We know it is very tempting to put your foot down (or whatever the bike term is) as soon as you come over the crossroads and round the corner but this lovely stretch of straight road is a very well marked 40mph zone and the houses along there have concealed entrances straight onto the road. We can't see you coming from our right, so you can't possibly see us pulling out on your left. Every time we leave the house, it's like running the gauntlet and one day someone is going to get hurt. Thank you for your consideration. It is a great road to travel on but please bear a thought for those of us who have to live on it.


B6047

Market Harborough to: Melton Mowbray

There are a few ways of getting to this road. I find the easiest way is to go along the A6 past Market Harborough and follow the sign for East Langdon/Melton Mowbray. There are a few little villages to go through, however the route is very twisty and you certainly have to be on your toes. Only travelled it 3 times but well worth do on a weekly basis, and no cameras or police (so far.)


A30

London to: Devon

Forget the usual M3/A303 route which is clogged with slow-moving holiday traffic in the sunny season. Instead treat youself to the A30 which runs almost parallel and is far more fun. There is little traffic, less plod and towns and villages that make you think that you have travelled back in time.
