A44 : Evesham - Moreton-on-Marsh (Fish Hill)

West Midlands > United Kingdom > Europe
July 30, 2008 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.9

This is a very nice stretch of the A44 with a good mix of most things, but it also has one very special highlight which earns it my 5-star rating - in the middle lies Fish Hill, possibly the nearest thing to knee-down heaven in the UK?

Imagine this... you see a warning sign for a left hand bend. You look ahead and left, and rising across the valley in front of you lies a long, wide, totally visible, 160 degree, shellgripped, constant-radius bend sent by the god of biking himself. You instantly KNOW you can achieve GP angles of lean on this bend, no matter what youre riding... Set your speed, lean in, hold forever... Sublime! Then another long bend back round to the right... and another up to the left... ooooh heaven :-)

Make sure you do the road from Evesham to Moreton-in-Marsh so that you take it uphill - rather more intimidating going the other way on the brakes!

Enjoy... :-)))


A39 : Bridgwater - Lynmouth

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.

Lots of open medium/high speed corners with good visibility.


A44 : Worcester - Penybont

West Midlands > United Kingdom > Europe
December 19, 2004 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.5

Some really good open sections on what is actually a major route (hence it can be quite busy), good surface and good visibility make this well worth a look.
