West Meon to: A31
Cant believe I have not seen this stretch of road on this site yet ! Fairly short stretch of road about 10 miles long but what a 10 miles. Loads of bikers meet here at the crossroads of the A32 and A272 by the Little Chef restaurant. First few miles of A272 from the A32 is the best. Really fast, really twisty open coutry roads with loads of Vis. Not many junctions off the road so you can hammer it with peace of mind (is there such a thing). Follow A272 all the way to A31 junction which is a roundabout. Get your knee down round the roundabout and then straight back onto the A272 again back to the Little Chef on the A32. About a 10 minute ride but unmissable if you are travelling down the A32

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.
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.
