Having also looked at the post about the most dangerous roads - its great to know that I only have a 1:10 chance of there being a dangerous, bendy road  :laughing7: :laughing7:  Lets hear it for the A537 Macclesfield to Buxton road  :headbang:

Give me the Girvan to Newton Stewart to New Galloway road any day for some nice bends.  :icon_sunny:

The Mennock pass road isn't that bendy. You want to do it from Wanlockhead so that it's downhill and the pass opens up before you, stunning. Watch out for rock falls and sight see'ers, (how do you spell that?).
The Beallach na Baa is bendier, (is that a word?)

A93 Glenshee to Braemar. Plenty visibility ahead. Great downhill piece of road.

Inverness to Ullapool road, obviously designed by a biker. Except for the bridge with a curve and cattle grids at each end, don't half make your bum twitch.

How bendy are these roads, are they safe to drive a car over or would they bend to far, ( dread to think what would happen to a loaded truck ), cant say i fancy driving down a road that bends to far down would make for lots of steep hills. so more info please,  :laughing7: :laughing7: :laughing7: :dontknow: :dontknow:

i see this topic has not been posted on for a long time! :sleepy2: :hello:
one of my fave roads is from Hartlepool on the A689 all the way to Brampton a total of approx 80 miles allow for up to 2-2 1/2 hours, great scenery, some boring bits but some really testing areas like the ones around the smashing town of Alston in Cumbria. 8)
go on give it a go? :thumbsup:

I can't believe they haven't got the A483 from Newtown to Llandrindrod Wells in mid Wales ..... better known as the Cresta Run.... a cheeky little number of bends out of Newtown leading to some fast sweepers near the end by the A44 crossover..... what a miss by Continental !!!!!

B3227 from Wiveliscombe to Great Torrington with an amazing "switchback" section near High Bullen.  Bliss. :thumbsup:
