It may only be 14 miles but if you like corners then you will love this route.
In fact, you may be in the countryside but at times you will feel like you are taking high speed turns and chicanes at the likes of Silverstone, Brands Hatch or Monte Carlo! How does undulations, double apexes, blind crests, tight turns and adverse cambers sound?
To kick off your journey you will begin in a more straightforward fashion just off the A505 near Royston that leads into Litlington. Then make your way to the B1042 out of Wrestlingworth, head to Potton and then Sandy to join the A1.
Twenty miles and 100s of driver experiences to put a smile on your face.
This B road is an A class road with long slow corners, fast turns to test your road-reading skills, plus ups, downs and rolling sections for test out your suspension. Let's not forget the twists and turns, hairpins and chicanes, to brush away any cobwebs you may have remaining.
Whatever car you use to hit the road this is a pefect Sunday drive (or any day of the week in facts!)
Ok we admit this is not local to Bedford but is one we highly recommend if you are taking a weekend away or just fancy a change of scenery.
This route is a 90-mile loop which takes in Helmsley, Rievaulx and its abbey, Danby, Whitby, Scalby and Rosedale Abbey.
So what will you get to experience along the way? The straight and narrow roads that cut through heathery moorland. The steep dips and climbs that surround hidden dales, as well as the ability to trek through acres of untouched woodland.
The landscape never stays the same, as do the roads, so every minute will keep you interested. Plus, you can feast on wonderful countryside, as well as world famous fish and chips in the beautiful coastal resort of Whitby.
