Visi­tors to Lin­colnshire al­most cer­tainly won’t have heard of them, but na­tive bik­ers know all about Bucknall Bends. This chal­leng­ing route of­fers a se­ries of small straights and twist­ing turns, nes­tled within pic­turesque coun­try­side.

We be­gin in the vil­lage of Branston (no, not the home of the pickle), which is a 10-minute ride from Lin­coln.

Leave the vil­lage and fol­low signs to­wards Wood­hall Spa, tak­ing the last left onto Moor Lane and then take a se­ries of un­du­lat­ing coun­try lanes un­til we reach Bard­ney. Cross­ing the River Witham, this is where the fun starts.

Fol­low­ing the road through the vil­lage and straight out the other side to­wards Bucknall, what lies in front of us is a se­ries of cor­ners that snake across mile af­ter mile of coun­try­side – only bro­ken up by a few quaint vil­lages that go vir­tu­ally undisturbed as we coast through. We stay on this road un­til we reach Horn­cas­tle, giv­ing the bike a good work­out along the way.

This ride is more about the jour­ney rather than the des­ti­na­tion and be­cause it is so short you can sim­ply turn around and do it all over again.

En­joy the route, turn round and en­joy it again A158
