Pork pie ride­out

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Riding -

There are two great rea­sons to be in the Hinck­ley area – it’s the home to Tri­umph as well as Mal­lory Park. The roads are good, too. Start­ing in Hinck­ley take the A447 to­wards Mal­lory Park. The tourist signs lead you past the en­trance road, so pop in and see what’s hap­pen­ing on track. Af­ter leav­ing Mal­lory keep on the A447 to Coalville and head into Lough­bor­ough on the A512. This takes you through the cen­tre of town where you need to pick up the A60 and then the A6006 to­wards Mel­ton Mow­bray. The main rea­son for rid­ing this route is the highly-re­ward­ing A6006. The sur­round­ing scenery isn’t the pret­ti­est, but the sur­face is good and the mix­ture of corners is in­ter­est­ing. And to top it all off there is even Pork Pie Town wait­ing for you in Mel­ton Mow­bray. Should you feel the urge to ex­tend your ride, try the A6047 which heads south from Mel­ton to­wards Mar­ket Har­bor­ough. The A606 is also ex­cel­lent and takes you to Rut­land Wa­ter. By rid­ing around Rut­land Wa­ter you can join the A6003, cut across to Mar­ket Har­bor­ough and then hit the A4303 and A5 back to Hinck­ley. A great day out.
