This is a GREAT run, full day out really if ya wanna really enjoy it, up the A696 and then on to Hawick with some lovely twisties then onto St Marys Loch with some of the best twisties around....well earned break at the cafe by the Loch and then on to Moffat and Peebles, alot of the road is brand new and a great mix of fast sweepers and tight twisty stuff bringing you in a big loop back to the A696 and homeward bound.
A nice trip to Hartside Cafe for a cuppa and back down and home over the awesome Stanhope Moors, a good mix of everything, some straight bits to get speed up and some of the best twisties around with great views to match. Lots of sections where you can see along way in front of you and use all of the road in corners.
Great run for weekdays as theres very little traffic.
A nice little figure of 8,taking in some nice scenery with a mix of fast sweeping bends and some tighter twisty back roads. Around 140-ish miles round trip, alot of the fuel stations along the way have closed lately, so if you cant make it all the way round you can add in Hawick for fuel halfway round before coming round the back of Kielder.
Theres plenty of coffee stops if your not in a hurry and want to stretch it out a bit........Rothbury/Otterburn/Carter Bar/Either end of Kielder and few Pubs/Cafe's on the A696 into Ponteland.
