Ive been riding this road fairly regularly for 20 years. Its good, but with lots of hazards as mentioned in the previous reviews.
Since April there are AVERAGE speed cameras the whole route. The average is not just recorded between consecutive cameras but they are all interlinked. As the countys most dangerous road FOR BIKERS they felt that something had to be done. Interestingly if you take out the motorbike statistics its near the national average for deaths and injuries.
Its still a great road but you cannot go for a fast ride anymore. There are certain sections with slow parts where you would have to seriously speed on the rest of the section to exceed the 50 mph average but youll need an average speed satnav to be sure you
e not going to get a ticket.
Good road for a cruise when its quiet.
