Round trip from Northampton to Cirencester
Bibury RP 18
This route starts at a McDonald's, a convenient place to meet your mates before setting off. This is a very scenic route and as soon as you cross over the very busy M1 motorway you are into beautiful English countryside with the roads lined with hedgerows and crops growing in the fields. You'll pass over canals and go past Boddington Reservoir and the home of Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin at Gaydon. You then turn onto the B4455 Fosse Way which is arrow straight. The Fosse Way was an ancient Roman road that ran from Exeter to Lincoln. There are large sections of it remaining and these are easily picked out on a map by their straightness. As soon as you leave the Fosse Way, you enter into the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty A.O.N.B. known as The Cotswolds and famous for the honey coloured stone cottages. The route stops for lunch in Cirencester and at route point 16, there is ample motorcycle parking and a good choice for food.
After lunch, the route is soon in Bibury, one of the most beautiful villages in England. A stop here is recommended. As the route leaves The Cotswolds A.O.N.B. you are still in the lovely countryside and it is not until you reach and go past the Grand Prix Circuit at Silverstone that this route uses a major road. From here, the A43 takes you back into Northampton.
