So, off to the road from St.Ives to Lands End.

The late great Colin McCrae once said this road would be one of the best WRC courses in the world. Right now I was interested in 2 wheels not 4.

The road hugs the North Cornwall coast all the way to the end of the country with the next stop being New York if you want to get wet. The scenery is breathtaking and the road has everything, long sweeping curves, tight hairpins and twists, switchbacks and plenty of places to stop and take in the beauty.

Quick warning - I grew up here and learnt this road like the back of my hand. If you plan on riding your bike like you stole it beware there are numerous points on this road that if you come off you will land a long way down and out of sight from any passing help.

In my youth I put a car off this road that virtually disappeared into bracken and heather, not sure 2 wheels and a person will show up any better.

You have been warned.

Life is an adventure, it's meant to be hard, if it was easy it wouldn't be as rewarding
