Minor road over the Black Mountains. Pop into Llanthony Priory for a drink. Road is narrow tight and twisty first half and once at the top opens out to spectacular views. Often used on Top Gear for helicopter shots of flash motors.
Pretty fast bit of road and a bit of dual carriageway to aid getting past the trucks! Some daft 50 limits in open country designed purely to fill the coffers of the local safety camera outfit to buy new cameras! Otherwise quite interesting and an historic market town a Faringdon for a cuppa on the way.
A fast flowing, wide main route from Newbury running through to the historical city of Bath. Not a very twisty section but quite nice to ride as it's mostly wide with good visibility meaning that other traffic need not hinder your progress too much.
A much nicer way of getting from the end of the south up to bristol, rather than going all the way up the a34/M4, with not much of a time difference. Lots of gorgeous scenery, some wicked bits of road, and some really hard to spot cameras near Salisbury(They're CCTV ones not big yellow Gatzos) managed an average of 50mph in both directions, even tho it was busier on the way back.
One for BIG TRAILY'S. This is the old D29 military road. Dirt track up the mountain and through the tunnel at the top and down the other side. Nothing too demanding for a large trail bike but pick a dry day. Great views and more challenging than tarmac. You may need a more detailed map too see the road (Michelin etc).
