Where are the best twisties in the North East????

I have only been riding since Sept 03' so I am still learning the ropes and the roads. Haven't been able to get out much due to our wonderful climate so what I am after is some good roads in the north east for the iminent scorching hot weather, to polish my riding skills on. Some good twisting, sweeping and fast, plod free routes would be ideal

Cheers.

Well I like the A68 that we take every year on the way down to Donnington. Basically right across the hills from the Borders all the way to Scotch corner. Loads of good views and a good variation of corners as well as gradient changes. One bit has these huge yumps that are simply amazing. Dont know if that is near you.

The A68 is not that far away, I was thinking more of B roads though, a bit more technical than most A roads.

I have found the B6278 from Consett to Barnard Castle is a good one, a variation of corners with a few good straights as well. You should try it some time. Scotch Corner is about 15 miles up the A66 from Barnard Castle so you could add it into your next trip down counrty
