This route is my favourite, plenty of twisty bits and enough straight parts for overtaking the best bit though (for me personally) is the straight run across Blithfield reservoir which leads into a great left-hand uphill bend at the other side just be wary of oncoming traffic coming in the opposite direction once your going up and over the hill
The A5004 between Buxton and Whaley Bridge is a spectacular road with virtually no police presence. A nice panoramic corner in the middle too with a slightly dodgy/torn surface. You can make it a triangular run, if at the first set of lights in Whaley you turn left onto the B5470 to Macclesfield - another good twisty road but with many villages. Once in Macclesfield, you go back out on the Cat & Fiddle to Buxton, then turn round and do it again.
Excellent road for a short, interesting blast. Watch out for stray sheep and respect village speed limits, please.
This is a good road as part of a circuit we do out in Cheshire. From the lights a Monks Heath there is a long uphill straight, a bit bumpy but id adds to the fun. You can keep your speed up on this road more towards the middle (slow up for the village) but there are a few knee down corners which are superb, a couple of blind crests on bends which are good as nothing un-towards like junctions after them. We do this road on a regular basis as its so good and like i said its part of a circuit that takes appx 90 mins. Have only seen 2 coppers in all the times i have ridden it one in blue volvo estate unmarked. watch for a couple of places where farmers have left crap on the road (suprise!) and hope you enjoys it as much as i do. Also follow for Jodrell Bank that is a great Road, will add that as a seperate route.
A fast, sweeping A-road through the pleasant Shropshire countryside. A good alternative to the lorry-plagued A41. Apart from the 40 mph limit through Crudgington, this road is very fast and smooth. Beyond Hodnet, it's still a cracking road, but much tighter and twistier.
