Fast sweeping route with great views but can be quite touristy at the wrong time.
A nice twisty pass through Northern Wales. There wasn't many police around when I rode it, but looking at what's in the press these days, it might be different now.
Mostly medium/high speed flowing bends and some good straights. Midway Cafe (just south of Whitchurch) is a nice place to stop on this route.
I've riden this section both on the bike and in a car. Its quite a tight, twisty and undulating piece of road. The surface is in good condition but there are a lot of bobbles in the road, these are more due to the type of countryside it runs through than the surface being neglected. It runs through some nice scenery but the road demands your attenion so you dont get a lot of time to take it all in. During periods of rain it can get very slippery in places as some sections run under a shroud of trees and there are places where fallen leaves can cover the road.
