Welcome to the May issue of RiDE, celebrating the prospect of sunny, warm road trips. With that in mind, we tasked RiDE’s ace travel writer Si Hargreaves to ride and write about what we think are the best routes in the UK. That’s the best tarmac, corners and scenery, all in a convenient 100-mile package — the ideal distance for a weekend ride-out, whether you’re on a CB125R or an R1250GS Adventure. Best of all, you can download the routes from our website, for navigation on your smartphone or sat nav.
To keep things fair, we’ve gone for at least one route each in England, Wales and Scotland (Si would have them all in Scotland if he had his way) and each is the perfect biking destination. Simon’s just got back from his favourite ride in the perfect Pennines and you can read about it on p42. But please, tell us what you think of our choices and where your favourite 100 miles is — email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
RiDE magazine features in-depth product tests, buyers guides, road tests and all the knowledge and information that every true biker needs. As the UK's favourite monthly motorcycle magazine, RiDE magazine helps you get your bike out on the road with detailed routes and tour ideas both in the magazine and in collectable supplements throughout the year.
