Mixed road types, excellent fun.
Great cruise through the countryside. Good straights with some twists. Road surface excellent as is visibility.
Good road surface with mix of straights and twists. Great scenery along the way. Stop off for the views of the Derwent Reservoir a must.
mainly rural roads with plenty of bends, watch out for sheep on roads.
Long way to Berwick
Countryside. Twisties and coastal
A little bit of everything.
Long day in the saddle early'ish start.
Good roads throughout the region
twisties, bendies and hillies!
Cracking roads. If you don't love this route it may be time to give up biking.
12 miles of gravel track along Kielder Forest Drive, then 20 miles or so along mostly narrow, twisty single track behind the Otterburn ranges. Suicidal sheep add to the interest. Reward yourself with a pint at the Rose & Thistle, Alwinton.
Quiet B roads, stunning Borders moorland scenery.
Route 1 if it's raining hard
I live in N/Shields. Get yourself to Warkworth, at the end of this route you can either go home or blast on to Kielder etc!!
Not so direct route home after work to blow away the cobwebs.
Nice return route home after busy day.
A deliberate attempt to travel cross-country East-West avoiding major roads. The section between Elvanfoot and Newton Stewart (A702/712) is glorious. The added bonus at the end of the trip is lunch at Streatery, Sandhead (http://www.streatery82.co.uk/).
A much more interesting route from Morpeth to Ashington. Done either direction at the start and/or end of working day makes life more tolerable...
Plenty of stop offs along the way for refreshments......Starting off at the Colliery cafe at willington front street, through crook heading towards corbride but turn left at carteway heads b6278 (manor house inn) its like a race track but beware of sheep, down to stanhope and over to middleton in teesdale, stone chippings have almost cleared so again racetrack with sheep, headig towards barnard castle, heading towards west aucland but turn left to join the a68 (The 68 cafe) then right onto the a689 and back through crook to the willington cafe for a sundays dinner :-) not an all day run but ideal for giving the bike a run out without much police interest :-)
some decent straights, country roads and nice scenery. leaving penshaw passing bemish - Stanley - Concett then thorough the countryside passing Derwent reservoir and ending up in hexam (plenty of places to stop for food or drinks) before returning back to penshaw on motorways
The roads in Scotland are amongst the best in the country. Police on a weekend but worth a day off work to do it through the week. As a group, with a pillion or solo this one is superb. Enjoy
Lovely part of the country taking in plenty of little villages. Hawes is a favourite with bikers. Lots of stop offs for a brew and a chat. Roads give you everything its up to you what you do with them. Faster or slow its a good run out.
