A54 : Congleton - Buxton

North West England > United Kingdom > Europe
January 5, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road3.8

Quite a similar sort of road to the Cat and Fiddle really, (i.e. very good but also very busy) The notorioty of the area means that you need to be on high alert for police pretty much continuously.


E74 / Col de Tende / N204 / SS20 : Cuneo - Tende - Ventimiglia

Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Az... > France > Europe
October 30, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.1

This road winds through a spectacular gorge, some fast sweepy sections and a great set of hairpins. watch out for the 'tunnel du tende, a long, dark, narrow and bumpy tunnel with artics coming down the middle of the road at you. Apart from that, a blinder of a road and a great way to get to the Med, or even better, turn off at Breil and take the D2204 to Sospel and Nice.

N103 : Braga - Bragança

Northern Portugal > Portugal > Europe
February 23, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

Route 103 in Northern Portugal runs from Braga in the West to Braganca in the East. About 200 kilometres of absolutely stunning mountain road. Traffic is generally light and the road surface, by and large, is excellent. Chaves, about half way, makes a nice stop off point and the opportunity to refuel self and bike. The western section is largely fast, open sweepers, the eastern has a lot more tight and twisty stuff. Ride it, you'll love it!

N623 : Santander - Burgos (Riding with General Custer and the Red Injuns)

Asturias/Cantabria > Spain > Europe
January 17, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.4

A really good selection of tight hairpins, fast sweepers and a nice view as the road rises up from sea level to around 1000m. As this is rural Spain, you may need to pay some attention to farm animals straying into the road (although I didn't see any on the way). This route is ideal if you've just got off the ferry from Santander.

SS38 / Passo Stelvio / Stilfser Joch : Bormio - Prato Allo Stelvio

Lombardia/Emilia-Romagna ... > Italy > Europe
April 14, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.5

The legendary Stelvio pass, an unbelievable selection of switchbacks on the Italian side of the Swiss border that has to be seen to be believed. It's almost always very busy and so is hard to get a clear run, but this is definitely a 'must do' for all bikers at least once.

D465 / Col du Ballon d'Alsace : Fresse-sur-Moselle - Giromagny

Alsace > France > Europe
April 12, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.3

This is a wonderful ride through beautiful scenery. This part of France is no on most peoples touring agenda and is, perhaps, all the better for it. Explore this whole area, it's fun.

B6047 : Market Harborough - Melton Mowbray

East Midlands > United Kingdom > Europe
January 18, 2005 - 4 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.1

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

N621 : San Vicente de la Barquera - Riaño

Asturias/Cantabria > Spain > Europe
August 13, 2006 - 5 star route rating Motorcycle Road4.8

Starting from San Vicente take the N634 before turning off onto the N621 to Unquera. Starts off a nice low level road with sweping bends & scenery before it starts to climb into the Picos de europa Mountains. A fantastci run along a mountain gorge with tight bend after tight bend before the road calms down a bit as you approach Potes. As you leve Potes the road gets a little narrower and realy starts to get intersting as you start to climb up to the summit at Puerto de San Glorio at 1609m - there is view after view of fantastic mountain scenery and more bends than you can shake a stick at. As you begin to drop down towards Riano the road surface changes for the better and the road is slightly wider, rewarding you with faster sweeping bends and a few good straights until you arrive at Riano which is surrounded by lakes... there is a service station at the entrance to the village with the best view I've ever had whilst fulelling and a great little Cantina just behind the service station to refuel the rider.
