Helmsley Loop

Yorkshire > United Kingdom > Europe
October 13, 2012 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.3

This route has a bit of everything, mostly single track, road surface generally good but can be some patches of gravel to be wary of, finishes with a short blast on open fast road back to Helmsley. It has a mix of everything, tight wooded sections with limited visibility, open moorland with clear views for getting a shift on, good surface but some gravel and can be water off the fields, tight twisties and open fast stretches, main hazards are sheep and the occasional car not expecting to see anyone else. Overall a good route that takes about an hour and finishes back in Helmsley for a coffee and cakes.

Kirkdale to Slingsby

Yorkshire > United Kingdom > Europe
October 13, 2012 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

If you want to avoid Pickering then this is a nice route through to Castle Howard, a rural road but plenty of corners, visibilty pretty good and road surface good throughout.

A68 : Crook - Jedburgh - Dalkeith

North East England > United Kingdom > Europe
January 11, 2005 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.2

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.

A683 : Kirkby Stephen - Sedburgh

A fast route with good bend combinations usually with good visibility. Well worth adding to a route around the Dales.

B6270 : Marske - Grinton - Thwaite - Nateby

Yorkshire > United Kingdom > Europe

Another Dales run, that can be joined to the Hawes - Thwaite run that I just entered :-) Lots of tight and quite technical curves through the Dales. I liked it on a big trallie. Care should be taken for oncoming cars on the narrow sections, especially round Thwaite where I understand there have been a few bike/car collisions. Be safe.

B1057 : Finchingfield - Haverhill

East Anglia > United Kingdom > Europe
September 7, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

It is difficult to find a dull road around Finchingfield, but this is probably the most demanding. It is slightly hilly with reasonable view through the bends. The road is not conventionally twisty, but is a series of short fast stretches with very sharp right-angle turns. To ride it briskly without making any error of judgement is an achievement to be proud of. There is a left turn shortly after Finchingfield, and a right and left turn in Steeple Bumpstead, but otherwise navigation is straightforward.
