Nice road out of Annecy, more or less any side road taken from here is also nice.
The A75 is (if there is such a thing), a motorcyclists motorway. Corner after corner of high speed open dual carriageway on very good quality motorway style surface. This section also offers easy access to the Gorges du Tarn and Viaduc du Garabit. The marked end point for this route is just before the peage section, but if you continue after that, it takes you over the spectacular and massive new Viaduc du Millau. Ridden at Dusk on a Saturday in June was excellent, no traffic to speak of
From Axat the road passes through some spectacular gorges then follows the bottom of the valley with tight right hand bends and fairly open left hand bends, the surface is fairly bumpy so if ridden quickly makes it quite challenging. Keep an eye open for a petrol station on the left after about 20kms it is also a restaurant and trout farm, you can either fish your own trout or catch one in a net, either way 8 minutes later it is on your plate cooked! the corn fed chicken and chips is also excellent. About 10 k later you start to go seriously uphill and the roads eventually open out and you end up near the ski slopes. Make sure you stop opposite mont louis airfield the view of the canigou and the pyrenees is breathtaking. See video for more of an idea.
The legendary Stelvio pass, an unbelievable selection of switchbacks on the Italian side of the Swiss border that has to be seen to be believed. It's almost always very busy and so is hard to get a clear run, but this is definitely a 'must do' for all bikers at least once.
Not a brilliant riding road, too tight and twisty, but the scenery is outstanding. Take the D907 that rund diagonally between millau and Mende, it's signposted Gorge du Tarn at the Mende end. Take your time to admire the views, have a raft ride down the rapids and take in the stunning new bridge at Millau.
good road, give it ago. i would write more but my dinners getting cold, so bye. have fun
Road starts form Flumet up to the Alps, through some small villages with a great view of Chamonix valley. Open and nice curves lead you to the lake of Roseland and then climps up to Cormet de Roseland (~2000m). The way down to Bourg St. Maurice must not be missed. One of the best scenery roads I have every ridden. Great view and lots of closed curves.
Cannes - Grasse - Castellane section: Done this route a few times now on the way to the Grand Canyon. Excellent ride, with good visibilty on fast corners, made for Blades and R1's. Also known as Route Napoleon.
Leave Mullheim heading east and head towards Belchen and on towards Bernau and Sankt Blasien. The route rises and twist to about 1414 metres. Well worth a look
The very famous Grimselpass, a stunning combination of breathtaking mountain drop-offs and wonderful super tight corners. This road tops out at over 2000 metres and so can experience some snow. Simply terrific, highly recommended, even though it is very popular with other bikers.
Some really good open sections on what is actually a major route (hence it can be quite busy), good surface and good visibility make this well worth a look.
this is the only decent road that starts in northants for bikers it has some lovley straight sections mixed in with some flowing corners and the odd tight corner just as you go thruogh kimbolton. but be ouick as this road has just been designated a red route so expect some police presence at some satge on this route. be sure to call in the bell in chelveston on your way thruogh for a warm bikers welcome and also when you get to st neots you will think that route was so good oyu will want turn around and do it the other way so why dont you????.
This is a route good route with plenty of good bends and straights for a good varied journey. There is section of downhill, wide, but quite tight bends with dodgy looking surface, which I reckon would be scary in the wet. Despite this the whole route is a blast and good for fast entertaining progress.
When you look at the map don't take the main road, but the windy bit to the East of the river and railway, then you'll have some fun. This has just been re-surfaced and was an absolute dream, even in the wet. It's quiet and all the bends have a good few view, but are tight enough to enjoy. If you're coming North out of Luxembourg it's really worth the detour.
This is a really enjoyable, quiet piece of road with little in the way of hazards and plenty of enjoyable bends of varying tightness. There are some bits of over banding and some gravel, though overall a really good bit of road.
An excellent selection of tight and fast combinations that's rarely busy. Very varied landscape and some scenic villages as well as the Belgian Spa Motor Racing circuit are within easy reach.
This road is a fun way of getting from A to B. It has plenty of corners, none of which are tight, and some good straights. It can get busy, though are a few miles of dual cariageway to get past the odd caravan. There is a friendly Honda dealer in St Dizier (Maginot Moto) for a bit of a break. A good fast road with corners best enjoyed at speed.
A fun bit of road with a number of interesting bends. There is a long straight at the St Ives end, ideal for a bit of a blast, but watch out for a camera at the Bluntisham end along with occasional visits from the mobile speed camera too. The surface past Earith is a bit bumpy and there can be mud on the road here too.
Quite a nice fast stretch with some open corners. There can be some farm traffic here periodically and thus mud on road.
It can be difficult to pass if you get stuck behind someone on this stretch, so avoid during busy periods. Otherwise excellent, just like a race track i.e. smooth, flowing and level with a good surface.
This is a good section of road with wide sweeping bends and few surprises, though watch out for one bend with white lines across the carriageway, especially in the wet. It can get a bit busy, I've even been stuck behind a boat transporter! You can stop at Chateau Chinon or continue. Beware the surface on the hairpins West of Ch Chinon, the surface was terrible every time I've ridden it.
A beautiful road especially between Nyon and St cergue.
Fantastically scenic route with too many bends to count and views of Mont Blanc. The surface on the Italian side is not good, but at least there are Armco barriers, which disappear on the French side. The Italian bends are very tight, alot of hairpins, but the French ones are more open. There was some snow around near the top even in June.
