The Cat and Fiddle run – A537, Buxton-Macclesfield, England
This 11km-long strip of tarmac in the Peak District is a rite of passage for bikers – but beware: the RAC have labelled it in the past as Britain’s Most Dangerous Road. A 50mph speed restriction has helped with the spills, but one ride of it will tell you why bikers keep coming back. Depart at the Macclesfield end, but watch the early section. Concentration is key as the corners just keep coming, getting progressively tighter. Up on to the moors and the bends open up, low stonewalls giving great views and good visibility for hazards ahead. The road hugs the hillside and dives left and right before ending up at the Cat and Fiddle pub for coffee and a note-swapping chat with the hundreds of bikers who flock there.
The Antrim coast road, A2 Northern Ireland
Rumored to be the road where Joey Dunlop first broke-in his leathers, the 60-mile A2 is an incredibly biker-friendly place for many reasons. The NW200 is staged in the area, so those who missed their calling as a racer can enter their very own world of road trials, just stick to the speed limit and don’t get carried away with the overtaking manoeuvres! Anyone on a motorcycle tour round here can make the most of the pretty fishing villages and get right up to the sea, with The Giant’s Causeway at the end, and spend several days making the most of the open roads in the area.
The A82, Glasgow to Inverness
The A82 is a truly joyous motorcycle road, gracefully sweeping between Glasgow and Inverness without anything to hinder the ride. If ever a road was laid for bikers, this is it. The road clings to the amazing Scottish landscape, taking in Loch Lomond, heading through Glencoe and past Loch Ness (monster sightings not guaranteed) to Forts William and Augustus. If riding this road, take time to appreciate the sights along the way – there are plenty of guesthouses, B&Bs, hotels and campsites to rest your weary heads (and legs!).You can make a portfolio of all the pictures and videos taken during the trip and put it on your social media platforms.

The A4117, Clee Hill, Shropshire
The A4117 offers a long ride through the hills of Shropshire. Riding from Ludlow to Cleobury provides the more challenging descent but either way, the views are incredible and there are always plenty of bikers about for company. Stop for a rest at the top of Titterstone Clee Hill, which stands more than 1,500 ft above sea level, and take in the breathtaking Malvern Hills and Welsh mountains while picnicking in the remains of the old quarries.
The Horseshoe Pass, A542, north Wales
The A542 in north Wales is one of the country’s most spectacular motorcycle roads, and that’s no mean feat! The steady incline makes both the ascent and descent easy and enjoyable, giving even the newest bikers chance to hit the open road and have fun in safety. The Horseshoe Pass is so-named because of the shape it takes as it winds around the valley. At 1,400 ft above sea level, the peak is a great place to stop and survey the world.
