A short section that can be linked to other good routes to avoid the dual A50 carriageway when you have time to spare. An enjoyable stretch with some nice linked bends.
This section starts off open and quite straight,then becomes twistier on the way into Melton. Some poor visibility due to hedgerows so be aware of hazards.
Some great roads and beautiful scenery. Plenty of refreshment points. Frustrating and unnecessary 50mph limit throughout, as in the whole of Derbyshire, but still a great ride. Busy with tourist traffic in peak holiday season, when police also patrol...
A great variety on this stretch with some lovely testing sections. Nice bends and rare police presence (except in the villages). The stretch after the A47 is probably the best bit with a string of fantastic bends and a very naughty left hander! Enjoy
