A508 : Northampton - Market Harbrough

A good way to avoid going north on the M1. This route links very nicely to Melton-Mowbray ending up eventually on the A19 just south of York. Predominantly straight, although there are some cheeky bends to catch you out. Be aware of the local lads in their mums Corsa who dont appreciate you overtaking them!


A5199 : Wigston - Northampton

A nice flowing route through a mostly rural landscape, quite well suited to a sportier machine.


A361 : Daventry - Banbury

A pleasant selection of medium speed sweepers through rural Northamptonshire. This route also joins another (also the A361) a bit further down, but the middle section is not that interesting.


B664 : Uppingham - Market Harborough

East Midlands > United Kingdom > Europe
May 31, 2008 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.3

Start in Uppingham and turn onto the B664 Stockerston Road
Watch the first mile out of town as there are a few corners that tighten up unexpectantly and often a lot of mud on the road from farms.
Then you hit a superb view over the valley and a 180 degree hairpin. Down the hill and watch out for the bridge (single file traffic). Lovely tight bends through Stockerston and then you climb up the hill and enjoy a few more sweeping bends.( you can do a minor detour left to Neville Holt - a private country house with more breathtaking views) At the top of the hill enjoy the views before a fast straight with dips into Medbourne (nice food at the Neville Arms). Out of Medbourne over one fast humpback bridge (you could get airbourne here) but then another harsh one where you dont want to!. A tight bend and then sweeping roads (look out for hidden dip) into Weston by Welland. Climb the hill into Sutton Basset and then a nice chicane onto a long fast straight up to the A427. Now you can either turn round and do it again or turn left and head for Corby and take the A6003 back to Uppingham. So much choice! So little time! Enjoy


Market Harborough to Chipping Warden

Your best studying the Map on this one and either using sat nav or writing each village down in succession and doing a point to point like that. The finish @ Chipping Warden is at a great pub 'The Griffin'. It's one of my favourite roads, fantastic bends, good visibility and next to NO police. Just be cautious of horses, farm traffic etc. I never go faster than I can stop round the corners then gas it when I can see a clear exit. It's a great road and never ceases to make me grin ear to ear on my MV F4
