Great roads of the South: Part 5

Published: 12 August 2017

This week we’re looking at six great roads you can ride in the South, as suggested by you.

These are the best roads in Britain, according to our high-mileage #ride5000miles members. Become part of the community by joining the Facebook group and find out more information about it here.

If you’re after some roads a bit further up the country then be sure to check out some of our great roads of the North.

Our fifth route is a real cafe racer from Loomies to Ryka's cafe and was nominated by Mark Noy.

“This route is well used by bikers for the brilliant corners and fast roads. The undulating  roads and scenery, as well as the small towns and villages you pass through are brilliant. This is a nice route to ride in the summer and there are plenty of interesting places to stop on the way.”

Length

64 miles 

Love it because

Nestled in the heart of rural southern England, this ride is the ideal trip for any rider wanting something a little longer, with the added bonus of guaranteed places to stop for a drink and a bite to eat. The roads surrounding Loomies Moto Café are biking perfection and the entire route snakes across mile after mile of luscious countryside. Heaven.

Take a picture at

Loomies Moto Café acts as the perfect photo spot. Always popular with bikers, so you may leave with more than just a snap of your own machine! 

Stop for a cuppa at

Starting at a café, finishing at a café and sandwiching a café in the middle, you really are spoilt for choice for a cuppa on this ride. 

Watch out for

Being an affluent area, this is a popular route for horse riding. Take it easy where visibility is reduced to prevent any chance of unexpected motorcycle/hind-quarter interfaces...

Best bike for the job

We can’t not recommend a café racer for this one!
