I had a cracking day out on capo yesterday with some friends and while riding home started thinking to myself, What is the BEST road I have ever rode on?
I,m not just talking about a road you remember because it had a few good corners or some great backdrop, I'm talking about the type of road that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when you think about it, the sort of ride that you think about getting out on when your really having a bad day at work, the road you would ride tomorrow if you could (I sure you get the idea by now)!
Ok to get the ball rolling heres my favorite road I've ever ridden on:
The A939 which is in Scotland and runs from Ballater and goes to Grantown on Spey via the Lecht ski centre, I try to make this a must whenever I'm in Scotland and have gone many many miles out of my way just to ride it. For me it has everything a great road should have with great corners, epic views and rises and falls up over a mountain for good measure. It's not a road you have to ride like your boxers are on fire to make it an experiance and if I had to have a groundhog day it would be on here.
