North West England > United Kingdom > Europe June 9, 2005 - 4.0 I've riden this section both on the bike and in a car.
Its quite a tight, twisty and undulating piece of road.
The surface is in good condition but there are a lot of bobbles in the road, these are more due to the type of countryside it runs through than the surface being neglected.
It runs through some nice scenery but the road demands your attenion so you dont get a lot of time to take it all in.
During periods of rain it can get very slippery in places as some sections run under a shroud of trees and there are places where fallen leaves can cover the road.
