This is a pleasant ride with nice scenery. The national speed limit is regularly interupted with 40mph limits which can be a shame. The road surface is poor in most places but the undulations and corners are fun. There are not a great many places to safely overtake. Overall I would say that this is a road to kep you on your toes but at the same time leave you feeling relaxed.

A nice flowing route that's relatively uncrowded (in South Eastern terms). Recommended stop on this route, the White Horse in Hackleton.
