i like this route a bit of warm up if your heading for helmsley further on and the Yorkshire TT over to Stokesley.
some sharp corners and fast straights

not a particularly inspiring stretch of road, at least it gets you away from the main drags round here, but no other redeeming features really.

Police presence is minimal, however a number of the Northern forces tend to use it as a training run in cars and on bikes. There are farms on the road so watch out for dirt on the surface and farm vehicles travelling slowly and pulling in / out. There are a few corners where the road appears to go straight ahead when infact this is a farm track and the road bends to one side or the other. Open your eyes, ride safely and enjoy.
