    One road google tells me i shall encounter on my first leg is the A6.... having looked at the road, it looks somewhat scary..

    Does anyone have any recommendations regarding the road? Is it one to avoid?


    The problem i have is i have very limited time to plan a route myself using maps due to me currently being in the process of taking my finals at uni.

    good stuff, heading towards morecambe way on this particular day,from blackburn, and then on around the lakes on following days.

    Just wanted to check as i was unsure not having ridden on it previously.

    i shall, its not going to get off to the best start though.. i will be amazingly hung over on the first day due to it being the day following my graduation ball.
     
  4. Roads aren't dangerous. It's the people that use them who are dangerous!

    I went on this road for several miles on my Jogle trip. It's not going to win awards for its quietness or scenery but it's not dangerous.
