With plenty of ups and downs, the A153 pro­vides a great ride to one of the UK’S best cir­cuits when it comes to spec­tat­ing.

Cad­well Park is a firm favourite, es­pe­cially when BSB is in town, so why not link in this great ride with a trip to watch the ac­tion? Fail­ing that, use it as a fun ride to oc­cupy a sunny morn­ing that can end up with you sit­ting on the banks at Cad­well watch­ing a track­day or some club rac­ing.

Start­ing near Gran­tham, the A153 is gen­er­ally a fairly quiet route but it does pass through sev­eral small vil­lages so keep the speeds down in built-up ar­eas. Once be­yond Horn­cas­tle the best part of the A153 is the fi­nal run to­wards Cad­well as the road crosses the Lin­colnshire Wolds. This up and down roller­coaster sec­tion of the road is bril­liant fun with a good sur­face and you can re­ally start to en­joy your bike as you sweep through the bends. Farm ve­hi­cles are com­mon, as are po­lice pa­trols on a race week­end, so keep an eye on your speed but in truth 60mph is fast enough for most.

Hav­ing stopped at Cad­well, or even car­ried fur­ther on into Louth, why not take the scenic route home and fol­low the B1200 to the east coast and then the A52 down to Skeg­ness? From this point the A52 is a fast and fun ride that takes you back to Gran­tham.
