Motorcycle News (UK) - - Garage -

Get­ting away from it all in the south-east of Eng­land isn’t easy, but this route will help you es­cape the madding crowds.

Leav­ing the slightly dull A31 at Chaw­ton is a wel­come re­lief as we join the A32, which de­liv­ers a se­ries great sweep­ing bends. At the West Meon cross­roads turn left on the A272 to­wards Peters­field, a road with plenty of bends to keep the mind oc­cu­pied.

Once we ar­rive in Peters­field take the di­rect route to­wards Chich­ester on the B2070, before turn­ing onto the B2146. The roads are nar­row, un­du­lat­ing and tree-lined. With vis­i­bil­ity be­ing limited and nu­mer­ous Chelsea trac­tors likely to be fill­ing the road, keep your wits about you.

At South Hart­ing join the B2141 then just out­side East La­vant nip on the A286 before turn­ing to­wards the Good­wood cir­cuit. After leav­ing the cir­cuit pass both Good­wood House and race­course before re­join­ing the A286 north, con­tin­u­ing through beau­ti­ful rolling coun­try­side before wrig­gling through the bot­tle­neck of Mid­hurst and con­tin­u­ing to­wards Hasle­mere and on to Go­dalm­ing.

These are the sort of crowds we don’t want to es­cape
