Now that the weather is finally looking up, we’ve started to notice an increased number of motorcyclists out on the road- speeding past our cars and showing us how to get from A to B in style! But where is it these bikers go to make the most of the elusive summer sunshine? Here at Sykes Cottages, we’ve discovered the secret and we’re going to share it with you. So whether you’re new to motorcycling or you’re an experienced biker, keep reading as we list some of the best roads in Britain.
A82, Loch Lomond to Loch Ness
As the second longest A-road in Scotland, the A82 provides 140 miles of breath taking scenery, large stretches of strait road and numerous bends and turns to keep you amused. We highly recommend that you have a camera handy on this drive as you’ll be passing no less than 10 lochs as well as the iconic Ben Nevis!
Cat and Fiddle Run
Care definitely needs to be taken on this road but just one trip down Cat and Fiddle will see you returning for more. The road consists of a number of tight corners and turns and of course glorious Peak District scenery making it a dream for experienced bikers. If you’re new to motorcycling then take things a little slower, we promise it will still be just as good!
Bwlch y Groes – Pass of the Cross
Bwlch y Groes is a minor road that runs from the village of Llanuwchllyn to Lake Vyrnwy but at 1,800 feet above sea level this is the highest pass in Wales! The views from this road have not to be missed and although the road dates back to medieval times you are now guaranteed a smooth tarmacked ride.
