UK’s 10 most dangerous biking roads – do you ride them?

Published: 25 June 2009

A new Eurorap report has identified ten roads, nearly all of them in the midlands and north of England, as more dangerous to bikes than any others.   

We want to hear from riders who know these roads. What do you think of them? Why are serious or fatal crashes more likely to happen here? Is it something to do with the road itself, rider behaviour, or just the sheer volume of riders who go there?

Here’s the list.

1. A537 Cat and Fiddle
2. A686 Penrith-Haydon Bridge
3. A5012 between A515 and A6
4. A621 between A619 and Totley
5. A54 Buxton to Congleton
6. A5004 Whaley Bridge to Buxton
7. A161 Goole to A18
8. A255 Margate to Ramsgate
9. A40 Llandovery to A479
10. A683 Lancaster to Kirby Lonsdale
