Clum­ber Park to Manch­ester – the A57

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature - Emma Franklin, con­sumer ed­i­tor

7 When vis­it­ing my Liver­pool home­land, I take this route as an al­ter­na­tive to the bor­ing transpen­nine M62. Skirt­ing through the Peaks and past the reser­voirs used for the Dam­busters’ train­ing runs, the A57 Snake Pass is a stun­ning, sin­u­ous, and spell­bind­ing route through Eng­land’s hilly heart. OK, most of it is cov­ered by 50mph av­er­age speed cam­eras, but some of the shell­gripped cor­ners are still tight enough to put a smile on your face, even at re­duced speeds. Re­laxed Bank Hol­i­day bliss.

Tight turns and stun­ning scenery make Snake Pass a blast
