daveski Wrote:the downhill section where speeds in excess of 60mph must be worth a lookthere are many non-trunk roads in scotland where 60mph downhill is readily achievable on two wheels, though not as readily advisable.
the descent through glen docherty to kinlochewe on the A832 is a particular favourite.
Fastest I have ever done in UK is 98kph on The String in Arran. I hold the Strava KOM for it ;-)
Fastest I've been able to get down CairnGorm before slamming on the brakes for Ciste turn is 85kph.
Never been able to do anything meaningful down the Lecht because it's always wet or windy when I am there.
In the 2010 Etape I hit 110kph going down the Col Du Soulor - oarrrsommmmmeeeeeee
However last week I went down Honister Pass with brakes on all the way.
