nice road with some slow speed corners and then some nice fast flowing corners. can get busy in summer and peak times, not many places for overtaking in some parts of the route.
This section of road is a gem, it might be short, but is worth seeking out. The road rises and falls with each mile with plenty of bends wonderful scenery. On a par with the best routes out there. Unfortunately the cafe at the end on the A303 junction has gone, but theres a Little Chef on the way to Honiton
Cracking road from near Bath towards Weston-Super-Mare, a favourite for BUMCC. Good corners, some fast, some slow, mostly NSL with a couple of 50mph sections and a couple of villages to slow down for. Good views and road surface but visibility is poor in places, but plenty of overtaking spots too.
This can be a tricky one. Best time to ride this road is on a weekday. Cheddar gorge gets overrun with tourists and cyclists. I prefer this route in an anticlockwise direction. Very rarely see any police up on the Mendips. There is some seriously quick roads up there. The Waterfall Cafe in Cheddar is very bike friendly and is a popular meeting place Enjoy and take it steady in Cheddar Gorge.
A really nice bit of scenary and a pretty good road that follows the Wye up from the Severn crossing to Monmouth. Easy access from the M48 J2
This is an excellent route across the top of the North Devon coast, if you've never ridden it, you should definitely try it. Really nice bends, good scenary and some interesting gradients. The only downside is that it can be a bit busy at times.
Follow the A39 South from Chewton Mendip and turn right onto the B3135. After about 8 miles you will start to drop down into the gorge. Just sit back and enjoy the show. Best to go early in the morning before the tourists get there, before 8am and just ride up and down the gorge five or six times. Look out for the mountain goats!
20 bends in just over 2.5 miles, some 90 degree, hardly any straight bits, but watch out for cow calling cards as youll off into the Rhyne (thats a big smelly ditch for non locals)
