Route Grantham to Louth Distance 50 miles Time 1 to 2 hours Brief description Eastern delight
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.
