A good selection of fast straights and some nice corners on this route down towards the Mull of Galloway. Some police activity in the area, perhaps this is Aprilia's fault!!
One of my favourite rides in the UK. The A714 offers a few fast straights, but its beauty lies in sweeping bends, a few tight curves and great views of the River Cree and the Southern Uplands. Theres a shop and a pub in Barrhill for a tea break.
The B7027 (Knowe Road) is mostly single track and bends like a bendy thing. Great views of Loch Maberry and the Merrick. Watch for mud & leaves at the colder end of the year. Used to be plagued by Forestry trucks, but now few & far between.
In the forested area there are a few Roe Deer, and given Bambis adverse effect on road handling, eyes peeled all the way.
This road has something for everyone. At the Newton Stewart end there are some pretty fast straights and nice sweeping bends. Watch out for deer on this stretch though. Pleasantly wooded run at the side of the River Cree. Road surface here is good but watch out for slippy areas particularly just after a storm. After Bargrennan the road starts to climb and the scenery changes. The road surface also changes and there are quite a few bumps and holes. Approaching Barhill the roads gets twistier. A mixture of fast straights and twisty sections awaits now as you travel towards Girvan and beware of gravel on the corners which is sometimes washed into the road. Approaching Girvan you will have a cracking view of Ailsa Craig on a good day but take care, the route down into Girvan is twisty and demanding. Come back by the A77 Girvan - Stranraer route or head back to Newton Stewart for a different perspective. If you travel this route from Girvan link up with the A712 Newton Stewart- Crocketford route and make a day of it.
There are many fantastic roads around Derbyshire but this is my favourite, road condition is good with a mixture of nice straights and reasonable bends with very few cameras on route.
