B836 / A886 / A815 / A83 : Dunoon - Inveraray

Argyll/Bute (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
December 12, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.8

Leave Dunoon north on the main road from the ferry boat, then bear left on the smaller B836 as far as Lake Striven and then on to Auchenbreck. Turn north on B886. All pretty scenic.

B500 : Freudenstadt - Baden Baden

Baden-Württemberg > Germany > Europe
September 21, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

This is a fast winding route that takes you through the heart of the Black forest. Voted one of the best routes by The Ducati Sporting Club of UK the B500 is a fast, wide road with good visibility and beautiful scenery. For the less discerning amongst you, there are a number of other narrower "B" roads leading off the route that are packed with twists and turns plus even more stunning scenery. Starting from Freudenstadt head for Strasbourg on the B28. About 1 Km out of the town there is a sharp right hander and then it's throttle open all the way to the top. About 1.5Km over the ridge at the top of the Kniebis Mountain there is a Right turn you need to take, direction Baden Baden. Straight on if you want to go to Strasbourg. You are now on the B500. Open the throttle full and hang on (if your that way inclined). There is one very sharp corner before the bridge (you will see the wall of the bridge) but apart from that the road is very wide and the corners are long and sweeping. Once you have reached the Hotel at the highest point of the route (you will know your there, lots of cars) take a break and enjoy the view. The second part of the route is slightly narrower and the curves are a little sharper, beware!!! You are also going downhill so braking needs to be harder. If the police are going to be anywhere then this is it. The last 5 Km's of the route, before you hit the small town of Lichtental, the curves can be quiet tight. After the town follow the signs to Baden Baden. Once through the tunnel follow the signs too "Stadtmitte" or "Centrum". You are now in Baden Baden On the whole of the route there are some very good restaurants and a number of biker friendly hotels. Once in Baden Baden take the time to do some sight-seeing. The Spa town is famous for it Casino, Theatre and good food. Enjoy the ride it's well worth the doing

Schöne Verbindung zwischen Freudenstadt und dem Wolfachtal. Auch das Wolfachtal ist sehenswert. Die Strecke hat ein paar enge Kehre, meist aber längere Kurven die auch Fahranfänger Spass machen wird.

A selection of really good corners in some great scenario. Some of the route runs alongside an old Steam Railway line which is still in use and check out the bridge over Loch Creran. Recommended.

Really nice drag strip style run down Kintyre. There are also some great corners on this route, the only downside being that there is sometimes a speedtrap waiting around a blind corner/brow.

A889 / A86 : Dalwhinnie - Roybridge

Highland (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
November 19, 2005 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.8

This is one to look forward too after the boring A9. Leave the A9 at Dalwhinnie go through the village and start with the bend that goes completely around the distillery. After this you get a series of fast staights with double bends at the end to take you to the A86 towards Fort William. The road climbs for miles, twisting and turning to Loch Laggan. A fast run alongside the loch, then a final twisting rush down to Roybridge. Be warned, the local police respect skilfull riding, but not speeding through villages. Speed trap regular in the 30 limit at Roybridge. Roybridge Hotel OK, but current owners selling up.

A87 : Invergarry - Kyle of Lochalsh

Highland (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
January 20, 2005 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.8

Fantastic ride into the Highlands that really shows the best side of biking in Scotland. A great selection of corners, brilliant landscape and some wonderful nature. There can be some animals near the road, but visibility is mostly very open, so they pose little threat. There was no Police presence at all when I was last there, but this may have changed as I saw this road mentioned in a major UK motorbike magazine article recently.

A712 : Crocketford - Newton Stewart

South Scotland > United Kingdom > Europe
November 19, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.8

This route is worth going out of your way for. Leave the highly policed A75 at Crocketford and follow the A712 all the way to the A75 at Newton Stewart. Initialy you go through farmland with the usual hazards, this then gives way to forest, but all of it bends and twists the whole way. This route demands concentration for speed, and its probably where Foggy developed his eyes. Just be aware that although I have never seen the Police on this run, but policing in Dumfries & Galloway is strict.

A95 : Keith - Speybridge ( The Speyside Whiskey Run )

North East Scotland > United Kingdom > Europe
November 19, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Starting from Keith you head towards Grantown on Spey on the A96, after the whiskey warehouses take the A95 and enjoy the sights and smells (fine malts) along the way. An excellent 180 degree bend at Ballindalloch which should be done a few times in each direction. A few twisty sections have too many double whites, so get past the cars when you see the signs. Watch out for the tourists and coaches. This route has recently been resurfaced over a lot of its length. This route can be tied in with other cracking roads in the area (see Pegsdowns route).


A832 / A835 : Kinlochewe - Ullapool ( West Coast Heaven )

Highland (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
November 19, 2005 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

From Kinlochewe take the A832 towards Gairloch, the first section past Loch Marie is exceptionaly fast with straights and wonderfull sweeping corners, 3 figures on speedo everywhere. You then get a short 'nadgery' single track section into Gairloch. After Gairloch the road just gets better and better, along with the spectacular scenery. The view over Loch Gruinard is worth stopping for. When you eventualy get to the A835 turn towards Ullapool, a layby on the right has a tea van, to stop, and get the adrenalin out of the system before the run into Ullapool and a pint of Krony 1664 in the Ferryboat Inn. This route can be enjoyed by all of us, cruisers, sports bikes, big tourers, everybody!

Lots of nice straights with a few nice corners thrown in. A nice high speed run, not much in the way of police presence normally, but be aware that there may be the occassional speed trap

A896 / Mountain road : Lochcarron - Applecross

Highland (Scotland) > United Kingdom > Europe
June 20, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.3

This is the highest classified road in Britian with spectacular views from the summit.From Lochcarron head west through Kishorn to the junction at Tornapress,turn left and start heading up the hill,dont take the left turn down to the old oil rig construction yard about a mile along the road.The road starts to climb from here for the next 6 miles,its all single track with some nasty blind corners but also some lovely sweepy bends.there is a good spot to stop for pics on a sweeping right hand bend above the oil rig yard with a great view over Loch Kishorn to Plockton and the Skye bridge.continue climbing up to the hairpin bends,can be tricky early in the year because of gravel and muck left on the road after the winter.Stop at the top hairpin and look back down the corrie at the view.Its about another mile to the summit with a big stopping place,if its a clear day the views are fantastic accross the inner sound to Raasay and Rona,south to Rhum and Eigg and all the way north to Lewis.From here on its down hill all the way to Applecross for 6 miles,again watch some of the corners for gravel and one nasty open left hand bend about half way down with an adverse camber which has caught out a few bikers.When you get back down to sea level you can turn left for the Applecross Inn ,good food and biker friendly,there is also a shop and prtrol station or you can go right and take the coast road round to Sheidaig to complete the loop.there are some spectacular views of the Torridon mountains,loch Torridon and loch Sheildaig.The road is quite demanding in places but well worth the efort but try to pick a clear day to take advantage of the fantastic views.

L131 : Müllheim - Schönau

Baden-Württemberg > Germany > Europe
November 5, 2005 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

A short run from a good hotel ( Die Engel, Mullheim), but when you get to the end you find you have been concentrating the whole time. Mountain roads with tight bends, downhill sweepers, spectacular views in parts. A good route to break yourself in for the rest of the fabulous Black Forest Roads.

B6277 : Middleton-in-Teesdale - Alston

North East England > United Kingdom > Europe
November 5, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.2

Leave the sportsbike boys on the famous Penrith/Alston run to take the flak from the coppers and do this one. More corners, less bikes, and if you combine it with the road from Brough to Middleton (even quieter) you will have a cracking run. Watch out for tourists cars in summer going to the local waterfall, and the unmarked Police bikes!

A699 : Kelso - Selkirk

South Scotland > United Kingdom > Europe
November 5, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Most types of corners available for your enjoyment. Good left/right cambered uphill combination near the start and finishes with a great combination of downhill, ever tightening series of bends, Watch out for the wooded section where the final bend is a sharp left 'nip' downhill with a road grate on the apex. Leave time to have a breakfast at Miss Ellies Cafe at the end.


A6112 : Grantshouse - Coldstream

South Scotland > United Kingdom > Europe
November 5, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Great ride to give the gearbox a workout. Plenty of corners to link together both tightening and opening out. Uphill and downhill twisty sections, swoopers, 2nd/1st gear 90degree corners (watch out for a couple where the road appears to go straight on!). Very rewarding if you get it right. For some reason rides better south to north than vice-versa. On one occasion saw Mr Plod parked up, but he left us alone, main hazards are farmers and gravel.
