Coming from the B5289 Keswick - Cockermouth, turn right in Lorton ont the Whinlatter Pass, the view over the Skiddaw Fells from the top is breathtaking, plus theres usually a van selling home-made ice cream in the car park!
My favourite thrash! The sweeping left hander off the Keswick roundabout gets you in the mood for what is to come. Its a great road for letting off steam, some nasty blind corners to be sure, but if you pick your time and are lucky enough to have good weather its an absolute blast. It does go past some tourist hot-spots so you have to stay alert for walkers and mountain bikers, but it is generally a genuinely enjoyable road which gets faster as you clear the fells and head towards Bothel. Enjoy!
A great scenic route, through Cumbria, ignore the two points on the image, I was having some problems getting the image to display correctly. The actual route does a circuit from Keswick, down to Grange, Buttermere and up to Cockermouth, it's a much lengthier and more interesting alternative to the A66. Enjoy!
This is undoubtably one of the best roads in the North of the Netherlands (the dijk roads quite often are), visibility here is good and although the road is narrow in places, it's well worth a look.
The Kamperzeedijk, A good if short stretch which offers a couple of fine corners with good visibility, particularly noteworthy as decent roads in this area are a rarity.
