Sevenoaks to Brighton

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
March 14, 2012 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A good way to get to Brighton from the SE of london avoiding the motorways. Some really nice roads with a couple of little towns but overall a good ride, Ditchling is a good place to stop off with some great views.


Dartford to A25 Wrotham Kent

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
March 14, 2012 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

Just a nice little route avoiding sitting on the motorways.


Macon - Geneva - Chamonix ( Great motorway to the Mont Blanc Tunnel )

Bourgogne (Burgundy) > France > Europe
March 14, 2012 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

A great road/motorway if you are on the way to Italy, really very beautiful scenery and a very scenic road, watch your speed in the tunnels, the swiss are pretty hot on speed limits.


Genoa - Genoa - motorway madness

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe
March 13, 2012 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

Just a bit of fun if you are staying around or near Genoa and want to kill a couple of hours... get on the A10 Autoroute near the centre of Genoa... head west toward Savona, take the A26 (E25) North up and over the mountains on an extraordinary motorway. Great curves and one bend feels like you do 360º but a great piece of road.

After roughly 20 klms or so take the A7 east for a few miles, often very busy and a bit boring, but then take the A7 South following signs back to Genoa.

This bit of motorway/autostrada, as you near central Genoa is just insane and dangerous, it feels like you are driving around peoples flats and houses. I promise it will make you laugh in your helmet. At times you feel like you are only a couple of metres away from people cooking in their kitchens or watching the box in their living rooms.

Then back to where you started. The road surface on the last 10 klms (the last time I rode it) was very slick and in the wet was treacherous, be very careful if its raining...

Rhone-Alpes (inc. Lyon) ... > France > Europe

A awesome ride with amazing scenery, lots of small villages, cafes, bars and Parma at the end. Really very highly recommended...


Blackheath - Beachy Head

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
February 6, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Nice way to get to Beachy Head from South London avoiding main roads, apart from a short section of the A22. Stop off at Birling Gap for a cup of coffee and a stale cheese roll...! Then up to Beachy Head to see as far as the French coast - if its a clear day.


Orpington - Pevensey Bay

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
February 6, 2011 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

This isn't for road-racers, just a relaxing, pleasant route to the south coast, but can be slippery on a wet autumn days.


A252 : Canterbury - Charing

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
September 5, 2010 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

Nice short run from Canterbury to Charing


Sauze hard mountain ride

Liguria /Piemonte/Valle d... > Italy > Europe
February 6, 2011 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

Sauze de O'ulx a great litte village to stay summer or Winter (skiing). My friends and I use it as a stop off point when going to northern Italy, Liguria, Tuscany. This route is extraordinary, its a hell-of-a-days-ride tho, takes in the Col du Galibier, Col de Liseran, route de I'Iseran, Lac du Mont Cenis, Susa (nice little town and Exilles (village castle) worth a look.


Levanto - Porto Venere

Umbria/Toscana/Marche > Italy > Europe
September 10, 2010 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This is an amazing ride above the Cinque Terre (Five Villages) Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, Riomaggiore, Portovenere, slow, hard work, but worth a go. Rode it on my Yamaha 660 Tenere, my BMW GS1100 and my (Ducati 888 though it was really hard work, hardly ever out of 2nd gear), takes ages, very narrow, never ending turns, hairpins and switchbacks, but there is some fantastic scenery. If you start out early enough take in a couple of the villages on the way. Come back on the (SS1 via Auralia) Passo Bracco, I do recommend it but remember it is a slow cruise.


Old Gottard Pass ( Tremelo ) : Foss ( Gotthardpass )

Switzerland > Switzerland > Europe
August 4, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Not the best biking road in Europe, but certainly some spectacular hairpins and dramatic views to rival the Stelvio. Usual blind hairpins and tourist traffic problems apply. Spectacular nonetheless


Flimwell - Camber

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
September 10, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.0

Another nice way to get to Camber this time from the A21


Rye - Battle - Hailsham - Lewes - Brighton ( Avoiding main roads )

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe

A nice way to get from Rye to Brighton or visa versa...


Hythe - Tenterden - Rye

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe

Just a really nice ride...


Sudbury - Needham Market

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
September 10, 2010 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.7

Great roads good pubs in both towns... worth a ride.


Loughton - Chelmsford - Halstead - Monks Eleigh - Needham Market

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
September 10, 2010 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

If you fancy a nice ride out East of London / Loughton to (Essex / Suffolk) Needham Market this is a good way, avoiding most of the busy roads. Sudbury to Needham Market is nice.


Westerham - Edenbridge - Hartfield - Maresfield - Lower Dicker - Birling Gap (Eastbourne)

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
September 10, 2010 - 3 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.0

A nice run down from Westerham to the Birling Gap near Eastbourne. Have a nice cup of tea in the cafe at the Birling Gap (Faulty Towerish).


A507 : Baldock - Buntingford

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
December 10, 2004 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.8

Quite a nice fast stretch with some open corners. There can be some farm traffic here periodically and thus mud on road.


SP370 : Sestri Levante - Moneglia - Fornaci ( ex railway tunnels )

Liguria /Piemonte/Valle d... > Italy > Europe
September 10, 2010 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

I added this road because its MAD, its not fast, you cant see anything and its nearly always chilly and very dark. Well it would be dark because its old disused single track steam railway tunnels tarmaced over with traffic lights (about 15 minute wait) either end. Classic Italians instead of letting them just rot away they turned it into a short cut. Saves about half an hour instead of going over the pass, you must try it cos its really wierd...


Sauze de Oulx - Nice

Liguria /Piemonte/Valle d... > Italy > Europe
September 9, 2010 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

A route recommended to me by an old friend, no yet driven it but he said it was special


Sestri Levante - Passo Bracco - Passo Centro Croci - Passo Bocco

Liguria /Piemonte/Valle d... > Italy > Europe
September 9, 2010 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road5.0

This is a great ride out, taking in three passes, Bracco, Centro Croci and Bocco. 3 hours of serious quick riding with really excellent roads... or a day out taking it easy enjoying the mountains, the food & wine and the fantastic scenery.


A252 : Canterbury - Charing

South East England and Lo... > United Kingdom > Europe
