With warmer weather and plenty of delightful scenery to explore, now is the perfect time to get out and about on your motorbike. Whilst quarantine restrictions mean that larger gatherings might be off the menu for the foreseeable, there’s no reason not to head off on an adventure – and the following day trips provide the ideal backdrop!
This 65-mile stretch in the Lake District will give you lots to see and do, all within a relatively compact area. Some areas are quite steep, providing an opportunity to explore some of the villages and views which are located along the roads. You’ll pass through villages and places to stop for a meal or refreshments. Most of the roads and routes in this area are also circular in nature, making it very hard to lose your bearings.
The Peak District is one of Britain’s most beautiful areas and provides plenty of room for you to explore on your bike! Our favourite route spans eighty miles and takes you right through the middle of the Peak District while keeping you away from some of the busier areas. This provides a splendidly isolated and relaxing trip through dazzling countryside and areas of both historical and cultural interest.
We recommend starting at Matlock and ending your trip at Hebden Bridge, taking the A6 north where you’ll be able to travel as far as the historic stately home Chatsworth House, and can even take a break to browse the grounds. You’ll be able to find plenty of great pubs along Castleton, where you can not only enjoy a nice meal but also access accommodation if you feel like taking a break.
Be careful with some of the narrower lanes around the Peak District and remember that this route is for fans of great scenery, rather than bikers who want a high octane trip this summer.
Wales is another stunning part of the British Isles, and this route spans 100 miles from Chepstow to Aberystwyth. Along the way, you’ll take in the Brecon Beacons, travelling the A466 to Monmouth and passing the ruins of Tintern Abbey. The pub which runs alongside the ruins is the ideal place to stop and refuel.
The route itself is scenic yet allows you to set the pace of your journey, with lots of sightseeing possible if you feel like moving at a leisurely pace.
