This section starts off open and quite straight,then becomes twistier on the way into Melton. Some poor visibility due to hedgerows so be aware of hazards.
Start in Uppingham and turn onto the B664 Stockerston Road
Watch the first mile out of town as there are a few corners that tighten up unexpectantly and often a lot of mud on the road from farms.
Then you hit a superb view over the valley and a 180 degree hairpin. Down the hill and watch out for the bridge (single file traffic). Lovely tight bends through Stockerston and then you climb up the hill and enjoy a few more sweeping bends.( you can do a minor detour left to Neville Holt - a private country house with more breathtaking views) At the top of the hill enjoy the views before a fast straight with dips into Medbourne (nice food at the Neville Arms). Out of Medbourne over one fast humpback bridge (you could get airbourne here) but then another harsh one where you dont want to!. A tight bend and then sweeping roads (look out for hidden dip) into Weston by Welland. Climb the hill into Sutton Basset and then a nice chicane onto a long fast straight up to the A427. Now you can either turn round and do it again or turn left and head for Corby and take the A6003 back to Uppingham. So much choice! So little time! Enjoy
A great variety on this stretch with some lovely testing sections. Nice bends and rare police presence (except in the villages). The stretch after the A47 is probably the best bit with a string of fantastic bends and a very naughty left hander! Enjoy
This is a nice piece of road, which combines all types of riding skills - Fast corners and slow Sharpe right-handers
Royston to Puckeridge section:
From Royston, at the small one way system in the south end of royston head out east towards barley. this first section once out of town has some fast clear straights and blind corners. once through barley the road opens out again and twists and turns over crests nicely, though theres a few deceptive ones with no obvious indication of which way the road goes - take care! theres a few small villages on the route with 30mph signs but out of there its fast as you like, buildings are mostly farm houses etc, so beware of farm traffic. ive seen the odd police car sitting in a field entrance between crests a few times but its not that common. towards the south end theres a couple of railway bridges that will get you airborne if you hit them too fast and one has a tight bend after it. overall a good road thats not over used by cars or by bikes, more fun and quieter than the A507!
