B664 : Uppingham - Market Harborough

East Midlands > United Kingdom > Europe
May 31, 2008 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.3

Start in Uppingham and turn onto the B664 Stockerston Road
Watch the first mile out of town as there are a few corners that tighten up unexpectantly and often a lot of mud on the road from farms.
Then you hit a superb view over the valley and a 180 degree hairpin. Down the hill and watch out for the bridge (single file traffic). Lovely tight bends through Stockerston and then you climb up the hill and enjoy a few more sweeping bends.( you can do a minor detour left to Neville Holt - a private country house with more breathtaking views) At the top of the hill enjoy the views before a fast straight with dips into Medbourne (nice food at the Neville Arms). Out of Medbourne over one fast humpback bridge (you could get airbourne here) but then another harsh one where you dont want to!. A tight bend and then sweeping roads (look out for hidden dip) into Weston by Welland. Climb the hill into Sutton Basset and then a nice chicane onto a long fast straight up to the A427. Now you can either turn round and do it again or turn left and head for Corby and take the A6003 back to Uppingham. So much choice! So little time! Enjoy

B4425 : Burford - Cirencester

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe

Lovely, wide quick 15 mile stretch of road. Depart Burford on A40 W and take left turning less than a mile out signposted Bibury and off you go. Very wide road for a B classification with big potential for use of speed if you want. Lots of wide bends with good vis that are fun when taken at speed. A few hidden road junctions but nothing too bad - width makes this road a lot safer than perhaps you would think. Great road surface. Fast to Bibury (half way) and through this idyllic village over bridge and past bikers eating ice cream or having a pint outside. Bibury is always full of parked cars and pedestrians walking in the road so beware. Out of Bibury and then a few miles to Barnsley via a twisty section with less overtaking opportunities. Through Barnsley and you return to wider, open road with bends that can be taken at speed before long straight to the crossroads with A429 a mile before Cirencester. Never seen any Police; never seen any accidents. Great road that I have ridden hundreds of times from 6am right through to 9pm. Watch out for wildlife and flooding! No speed cameras either.

B3306 : St.Ives - Land's End

South West England > United Kingdom > Europe

A nice route with good scenary, not super fast but interesting anyway. Can be busy during holiday season as it so picturesque.
