Cadwell Park Run
A terrific run that swoops and twists around the Lincolnshire Wolds and takes you past the legendary Cadwell Park. The Willingham Woods lay-by is packed with bikers on Wednesdays and Sundays in the summer.
Horncastle>Louth (A153) 2. Louth>Market Rasen (A631) 3. Market Rasen>Wragby>Bardney (B1202) 5. Bardney>Horncastle (B1190)
The Helmsley TT
I've decided to start the Yorkshire section with a run that takes in my favourite UK road, the legendary B1257. There is everything you need to get your pulse racing and if you've never ridden it, you must. The route back from Castleton to Hutton-le-Hole is great too - fast and wide open.

The B6277 between Alston and Middleton-In-Teesdale is one of my favourite roads. It's very high up (and cold, even in the summer months) and marked with six foot snow poles that are great for helping you read the road. The B6255 through Ribblesdale is spectacular and the Buttertubs Pass from Kirkby Stephen to Hawes is motorcycling heaven..

The B1248 from Beverley to Wetwang is a real classic. It's a fantastic ribbon of tarmac with some great bends. The run up to Staxton is more of the same but with some steep hills to spice things up a bit. Don't be put off by the Unclassified status of the Malton to Stamford Bridge section - it compares well with any B road you're likely to encounter.
Beverley>Wetwang (B1248) 2. Wetwang>Driffield (A166) 3. Driffield>Staxton (B1249) 4. Staxton>Malton (A64) 5. Malton>Stamford Bridge (Unclassified) 6. Stamford Bridge>Wetwang (A166)
It can be hard to find somewhere to go for a good rip in the south east but this route offers plenty of opportunities for some spirited riding (always within the law, of course). If you fancy stopping to cool down, Bodiam Castle is a stunning place to visit.
Head to Bexhill from Hastings (B2092)>Left on to the A2100>Left on to the B2095 to Catsfield>Take the B2204 then B2096 to Shover's Green>B2099 then A21 towards Hurst Green, after 1 mile, left towards Bodiam>Continue to Staple Cross>B2165 towards Rye>Take the A268 to Rye, then the B2089 to Broad Oak>A the Broad Oak crossroads, take the A28 back towards Hastings.
This is a mega run that takes you along the shores of Loch Fyne, through ancient forests and along the Atlantic coast. Traffic is sparse and the scenery is fantastic. But the main attraction is the corners - hundreds of them!
Oban>Crianlarich (A85) 2. Crianlarich>Campbeltown (A82 & A83)
The Road To Mallaig
If you're heading North through Fort William, don't ignore this road. It's quiet even in the summer and the views are truly amazing. But we're here for the corners and that's what you'll get. Once you get to Mallaig, you'll want to turn around and do it all over again - this is one fabulous road.
Fort William>Mallaig (A830)
This 20 mile loop was made famous by Evo magazine and consists of the A5, A543 and B4501. It's myriad sweeps, swoops and jumps will make you think you're in a biking theme park. There's very little traffic, stunning scenery and a good surface, but watch your speed.
Pentrefoelas>Cerrigydrudion (A5) 2. Cerrigydrudion>Pentrefoelas (B4501 & A453)
This road is so good it's worth crossing France just to get to it. It uses the route taken by Napoleon on his return from exile on the island of Elba in 1815. Follow this stunning road for one of the great motorcycling experiences of your life. It takes you up high over the Alps and then plunges down towards the Mediterranean and the town of Cannes. Along the way you will encounter a never ending succession of corners of every type and, except on French national holidays, rarely more than a light dusting of traffic.
Grenoble>La Mur>Corps>GapDigne>Castellane>St. Vallier-de-Thiey>Grasse>Cannes (A51/N85)
B258, Eifel Region/Nurburgring
This road is a total riot - almost as much fun as the Nurburgring. It's well surfaced, mostly well sighted, and fast. There are many great roads around the 'Ring but this one's my favourite.
If you have a tip for a good road, please let us know and we'll add it to the list for everyone to enjoy.
