This is now my favourite road, it has everything! Straights, hills and dips, corners galore, gravel, dung, suicidal sheep and murderous white van drivers and it just goes on and on and on.
The road really is fantastic; at the east end some tight swinging bends with enough straights to gain speed and overtake any tin boxes - watch for the left hander just out of Richmond which just goes on forever! Above Reeth the road narrows with lots of twisty corners and dips/bumps, take care or youll find the bike going up the next one while your kn***ers are still coming down from the one before! Then you rise up onto the moor with some great tight flowing corners but good visibility. The route ends with an exilerating 14% drop down into Nateby. To top it all not too much traffic and among some of the best scenery you could wish to see. Just amazing.
