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!

This is a great little run on a Sunday morning to get rid of the cobwebs, if you time it right then you can miss all the sunday drivers and really have a go at this route. Lots of great corners but watch out for the odd humpback section here and there as it is easy to get airborne just before some of the sharp bends !! There is the odd straight bit for the quick blast but as the route levels off you can have good vision across the low hedges. Now starting to get pretty popular with other riders,and no sign of Plod or cameras as yet !! What i can recommend is a ride to Withernsea from Hornsea and have breakfast at the cafe on the promenade, then head on back to Hornsea, and do it in the opposite direction.
