02-Mar-2022


As the sunny days are approaching, we know that the time is coming where you can now dust off your Motorcycle which may have been in the garage over Winter!

We have dedicated this article to the Best British Driving Roads ready for the Spring / Summer season.

Below, we have outlined the top 5 roads you can’t miss out on this year:

 

1.) Dartmoor National Park

Dartmoor is situated in the heart of Devon, simply taking the B3212 from the Cathedral City of Exeter. This will then guide you straight across the middle of Dartmoor. Surrounded by scenic landscapes, take some time to drive through the beautiful valleys with Neolithic tombs, Bronze Age stone circles and abandoned mediaeval farmhouses.

2.) Cheddar Gorge

Take a drive through the dramatic views of Cheddar Gorge. With the incredible views of England’s deepest Gorge, it is one of the most scenic natural landmarks. The B3135 winds throughout, with hardly any tight bends, and the road opens up so you are able to drive and enjoy the scenic views passing by you.

3.) Giant’s Causeway

Giant’s Causeway is known as one of the world’s greatest drives. This is because of its 120 mile Causeway Coastal Route between Belfast and Derry-Londonderry in Northern Ireland. If you were wanting a route full of picturesque landscapes, while embracing a windy route, this is the one for you! What’s more, the landscape featured in the TV Show, Game of Thrones.

4.) Cat and Fiddle

The Cat and Fiddle was actually named after the pub which is situated on this route. This is known to be one of the most famous and challenging routes in the Peak District. Starting from Buxton in Derbyshire to Macclesfield in Cheshire. It is around 12 miles and will take around 30 minutes in total! This is one of the most popular routes for Bikers especially as it features a range of bends and steep drops to the sides!

5.) Black Mountain Pass

Last but not least, we have the Black Mountain Pass Route which is one of the most popular driving roads in Wales! It is a 23-Mile stretch over the A4069 that rolls through the Brecon Beacons which then connects the National Park. The road runs parallel to the edge of the National Park. If you were to reach the top, it climbs to a huge 1,600ft which you will then be able to see striking views of South Wales.

In summary, we would love to know which of these roads are your favourite, or if there are any you would recommend. Join us in the discussion on Facebook and Instagram.
