FROM THE SOUTH A1 avoid­ance!

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Ride Miles Riding -

W hen trav­el­ing up from Lon­don you may be tempted to sim­ply sit on the A1 – don’t! Turn­ing off at Bal­dock ser­vices opens up this lovely route that breaks the monotony of the A1 and gives you ac­cess to some re­ally fun bends. It’s a bit of a fid­dle to nav­i­gate as you dart be­tween ma­jor roads, but once set into your sat­nav is well worth tak­ing. When you fi­nally start the run to­wards Peter­bor­ough from St Ives you will ap­pre­ci­ate just how good the lo­cal roads to the East of Eng­land Arena are and why MCN uses them for so many of

our road tests!

Take a pic­ture at: St Ives has a statue of Oliver Cromwell in its town square, mak­ing it the per­fect selfie spot…

Stop for a cuppa at: Fol­low the signs for Peter­bor­ough’s dog racing track and next door you will find Wheels Mo­tor­cy­cles (PE1 5BJ), which has a cool café. It’s a multi-fran­chise dealer, so there are loads of bikes for sale to tempt you as well…

Watch out for: The po­lice of­ten use the Ab­bots Rip­ton road for train­ing, so watch out for po­lice mo­tor­cy­cles trav­el­ing sur­pris­ingly quickly!
