Its a high-level B-road through farming country, so keep up the concentration. Tree-shaded twisties as you climb out of Ruthin, then switchback straights and easy bends through forests followed by open country with dry-stone walls as crash barriers (not) if you get out of shape. Watch out for crud on the road left by Dai the Tractor, and even though you can see the sharp left-hander as you approach the pub downhill in Llanfihangel, take care: one false move and youll be stuffed into the lounge bar.
Local plod on duty tend to concentrate on the Denbigh Moors road or the A5, but beware, its a favourite for the BikeSafe runs. Meet two bikes together going fast-ish and the big one bringing up the rear may well be an off-duty copper sharing his wisdom.
Easier to see what's coming up here on this section than most of the roads in this area, a bit up and down, but pretty good really.
One of the best this one, loads of good corners and a good surface. Really excellent
Leaving the A590 at Gilpin Bridge the route starts with a number of long straights with reasonably tight corners - good vision and well fast. Once through the Esses near the farm at Row the road becomes more undulating and the corners more varied. The further you go the tighter and more twisty it becomes - watch out for the jumps near Crossthwaite. The final section into Bowness has a poor surface in places but is still good to ride.
