A very good ride if you can catch it on a quiet day (midweek early or late season) otherwise very busy during school holidays and difficult to pass in places. Police target road on sunny weekends be careful!

I don't like this route much.. the road surface is poor and there are way too many villages and 30mph sections.. you just get going and you have to stop again..

quite a good run this one, remote(ish) and great views. Can get (inevitably) clogged in Summer, but still worth riding even then. The traffic will slow you, but you get more chance to look around!

Some nice turns on this varied if slightly tricky route, visibility in places not great and road layout can catch you out on late overtakes.
