    favourite road or place on that road

    whats your favourite road or place on that road ie A406 ace cafe ?
    For me you will have to go back 40 years .the OLD A12 from Chelmsford to Hatfield peveral ,the old petrol pumps at tiny garages the thathed cottage that sold teas and egg & bacon pie .and the long gone country pubs all left behind by the bypass's and road "inprovements" the trip home or to my parents caravan in maldon was a great adventure .well i was only a boy back then but now its a forgoten age, on the way home on a sunday night on these small roads the trafic was heavy , the cars would over heat so people would stop at the pub to let the trafffic clear and the cars cool down ,...now days the cars zoom past these villages so they can get home to watch TV !

    Back before I had my accident, I had a very mild Kustom Triumph Herald convertible. There is a stretch of road that starts at the bottom of Portsdown hill by Bedhampton near Portsmouth that takes you all the way over the top of the hill, overlooking the city and passing the historic forts and leading on to the little A road that runs past 100 acre woods and takes you to Wickham square. On a sunny day, summer or winter, I can't think of a place I'd rather be than in that car with my wife and kids driving along that stretch of road for the sheer hell of it. In fact, when I die I hope that's what I spend eternity doing. Don't get me wrong I love The Kripple Kart but I sure do miss driving with the top down.

    years ago mine was the A420 between oxford and swindon, lovely smooth road with more than enough bends to keep it interesting - ruined now tho with thousands of speed cameras

    The A75 from Paris to Montpellier is a great road and the highlight is going over the Millau Viaduct , you're 890ft above terra firma at it's highest point...
