Nominate the best place to live!

MCN wants your nominations for the best place in the UK for motorcyclists to live. We'll use your answers in a forthcoming feature. We're interested in places with access to great roads, bike meetings, events, tracks and races. We want to hear about cities, towns or villages but not entire counties or regions. It could be somewhere famous for a big...

Best bike places.

Bournemouth must rank as one of the best places.  Big bike meet at Poole quay every Tuesday,  lots of twisty tarmac around Wimborne, Salisbury etc. and probably the kindest weather in the UK with little in the way of snow or ice. The local constabulary aren't too bad either...

Yes, a nice road you mention, apart from the fact its always clogged with cars and coaches. How can you ignore the opposite direction where you can take the road up to Hartside Fell, one of the best roads in the country (as long as you don't bin it on the blind bends) or the A6 from Penrith down to Kendal over Shap, surely more desirable roads. And Windemere and Bowness, give them a miss and go to Wilfs cafe at Staveley a few miles up the road towards Kendal, excellent home-made food. No, I don't work for them or have a vested interest, they're just worth recommending.

The Cotswolds

Cote road from Brighthampton to the village of Aston in Oxfordshire. A fast road with lots of long bends of varying difficulty, no buildings, no side turnings with good visibility. Superb in any weather.

Scotland its got to be, if u hav been u know why... Head north of Glasgow or  Edinburgh and its a bikers heaven. So many of my biking mates who hav came up over the years agree. Leave Glw and ur lucky to encounter traffic and congestion for hours, just mile after mile of biking roads. Do the loop west coast to top Scotch as ur man Nick Sanders calls it then back down the East. Take 5 Days and hav a blast, take in Isle of Skye its like the TT without any Traffic Cops...
