Just done this route on way to Melton from notts and it was great. Big grin factor. Only let down was the occasional bit of bad road. Great suggestion
Good bit of road that I use regulary, on the way to melton. The bridge can be jumped but be careful, sharp drop other side.
An excellent section of road, well worth a detour if you're in the area. Nice clear fast bits, many corners and a nice humpback bridge (careful - there's a bend after) to finish near the Eastwell end.
