Big ques­tion, plus your letters

West coast of Scot­land be­tween Mal­laig and Fort William in Oc­to­ber. Stun­ning views, colours that ra­di­ate out when the sun breaks through the clouds and ev­ery sea­son in 60-ish miles.

Shaun Kirby

The Cotswolds. Great roads, low-vol­ume traf­fic, plenty of quaint vil­lages to pass through, lots of tea­rooms, big hills, plenty of al­ter­nate routes, views to die for, pa­tient driv­ers — they are used to be­ing stuck be­hind trac­tors so are happy to wait be­hind cy­clists if they have to.

Lee Ross If you’re lucky enough to live in Done­gal… you’re lucky enough.

Donal Mcgee

Any­where the rub­ber meets the road, the sun shines on your face and a gen­tle breeze is on your tail. That’s where.

John Gil­bert

Majorca — Sa Calo­bra de­scent and then climb back out. Both awe­some.

Colin Price

Tener­ife. The as­cent from San­ti­ago del Teide fol­lowed by the Masca de­scent. It’s like Majorca’s Sa Calo­bra only tougher, longer, steeper and more beau­ti­ful.

Jackie Frazer Out­side. Bet­ter than in­side. David Sil­ver

The UK, Aus­tralia and New Zealand. Ev­ery­where else they drive on the wrong side of the road and shout at you in for­eign lan­guages, some of them sound very an­gry but I have no idea what they are on about.

Bel­gium: cob­bles, wind, hills and beer. Mike Gough

Dum­fries and Gal­loway. Quiet roads, fan­tas­tic scenery and friendly peo­ple. What else do you need?

Nigel Lewin

North-west Crete. Moun­tains, sea, beau­ti­ful scenery, quiet roads and great peo­ple. You can­not beat it. Heaven on earth for cy­clists.

Phil Whit­lam

Switzer­land. The best tar­mac and no white van man… and some big hills to con­tend with.

Kevin Booth New For­est or the Isle of Wight. Andy Miller

Any­where with a mate, a cafe stop and all your trou­bles dis­ap­pear while get­ting fit­ter.

Claire Whit­worth

Home from my work. In fact, any­where from my work.

Dar­ren Ross

Gran Ca­naria. Great weather all year round. Smooth tar­mac, amaz­ing scenery and 2,000-me­tre climbs.

Mark Vogler

Sa Calo­bra: hair­pin haven
