Truro to St. Mawes Castle (via Veryan)
South West England > United Kingdom > Europe
April 29, 2019 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Great ride from Truro petrol station in the centre, out to St. Mawes via Veryan on the Roseland Peninsula. One of the best sections of twisty roads in the county, beware of the odd caravan (not as popular as the North coast but they are still about) and Tractors. Veryan is a pretty village with historic round house on the entrance and exit, pub, local shop and green. It's tight in spots and goes down to single road coming out and some gravel in road so take caution. St. Mawes is a Harbour village with great Pubs, Fish & Chips, views out to sea, Falmouth and not to forget the Castle.

Blaise Hamlet to Severn Beach and on to Saul Junction, Sharpness Canal.
South West England > United Kingdom > Europe
April 28, 2019 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Some nice twisty roads out of Bristol, the section to Easter Compton has some pinch points. Severn Bridge has a good little Cafe and views over to Wales and the bridge. Back road to Thornbury has nice twisty corners. The ride up the A38 to Saul Junction is a typical single lane A road but worth in when you get there. Lots of parking and a good food, tea and Coffee at the cafe.

70 miles. Mostly (90%) national speed limit roads with pretty villages to ride slowly through. Not many fast straights but SO MANY long fast bends and lots of testing twisties . Beautiful N Devon rolling countryside to catch the corner of your eye. Ride this at leisure for pleasure or fast for major grin! Avoids the major holiday fraffic roads so traffic is usually light and no end of overtaking places . Can't go wrong. Today the route took me 90 minutes which does not include a 10 minute stop at the petrol station in launceston(just around the corner from the mini -roundabout).

A roads to Land's End photo return the scenic way including the King Harry Ferry. Road surfaces vary. Petrol between Helston and Trelissick are all on the right hand side although the Falmouth petrol station is on a roundabout.

Bored of the A303 : Shrewton - Westbury - Mere
South West England ... > United Kingdom > Europe
May 8, 2018 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Great little section to break up the A303, the extra distance is well worth the ride, the Three Daggers cafe and pub in Edington are a great place for non service station food and drink.

Liskeard to Kingsand Loop.
South West England ... > United Kingdom > Europe
April 8, 2018 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

In my opinion this has to be one of the top 5 routes in Cornwall for views and twisties. On a clear day as you head out of Kingsand the views along the coast are 2nd to none with great photo opportunities on route and good places to stop for refreshments along the way, from cliff top cafes to beach cafes and local pub there is plenty to choose from. The road along the coast does have some pot hols so be warned but certainly not enough to spoil a glorious ride.

A3057 / A343 : Romsey Road
South West England ... > United Kingdom > Europe
October 30, 2017 - 2 star route rating Motorcycle Road2.0

A nice road to drive in a convenient location. Lots of attractions. Beautiful vegetation, but not much in the way of views until you get a bit closer to Newbury. A variety of different types of corners. Occasionally you might come across tractors and wild life, but mostly quite safe. No fixed speed cameras. However, a mobile speed camera is often positioned in Leckford during week days. Apart from that there is almost no police presence. Overall a great road to take your other half to for a nice day out.
