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.
