Motorcycle & Motocross Routes
Northampton – Market Harborough (A508)
Take yourself on a mini countryside ride through to Market Harborough on the A508, which is pretty much a straight road with a few little wobbles along the way. Best rode on a bright summers day to see the sun shine through the trees; visibility of this route is very clear to take you on this exciting drive.
Northampton – Banbury – Milton Keynes
This ride must be taken with caution when approaching the smaller villages due to limited visibility and poor road surfaces. Most of the surfaces of the entire route are very smooth. However, it is reported that in areas, caution must be taken. Although, the views and the ride itself seem very fun! Starting in Hardingstone, make your way up to the University and round to Weedon Bec; from here you can make your way over to Daventry, then down to Banbury. Once you have approached Banbury at the M40 roundabout, head east to the A43 where your destination will be North-Western Milton Keynes.
