Scenery is picture postcard and the best aspect of the route for me, although there are a few straights and a number of nice corners. Road condition is generally pretty good but this can be a busy road, including caravans, being directly on the path to Fort William and other northern delights. I've only seen a minimal police presence myself but have been warned that there are unmarked cars on regular patrol.
This road wasn't busy when I rode it and think that's it's normally so. It was a former main road so has a good construction. Some really good corners.
Good surfaced A road 50/60 speed limits some cameras, busy with some police bikes etc sundays. ride takes u past Whalley, Clitheroe over to Skipton and on over tops through area called Blubberhouse [high mooreland]dropping down into Yorkshire at Harrogate, through Harrogate and onto York where one can continue east to either Bridlington Scarborough or Whitby on East coast, Some brew stops on way and good pubs for food. worth a days ride out.
A great route
Really nice and scenic long section that includes a whole variety of nice corners and straights along its length. The surrounding (mostly a National Park) is really good. As it is a main route, it can have quite heavy traffic.
