Favourite A(lfa) Roads
So, now Iíve got myself an Alfa again, Iím rediscovering the joy of actually driving for pleasure rather than the regular A-B commute or weekly trip to Morrisonís/B&Q etc. The question is, does anyone have a suggestion as to where I might go, in the nicest possible way, that is.
Where better than the Alfa Owners website to ask if any of you can recommend good driving roads in and about the Midlands. You know the sort. Smooth flat tarmac, sweeping bends, lovely scenery and no cameras? The type of road that makes you grin like a fool and feel glad you bought an Alfa.
I used to love the drive from the A5 down Fosse Way towards the Cotswolds until some jobsworth decided it would be a great idea to add a liberal sprinkling of speed cameras on the best bits. Most frustrating. There are some fantastic stretches of tarmac up and around the Burton on the Wolds area, and the A426 from Blaby to Lutterworth can be fun in short bursts when the 40mph Volvos, tractors and roadworks don't impede progress, but there must be many more around.
Where there's no speed camera, there's no speed limit!
