    Default roads and a route

    a 689 crook to alston
    b6227 middleton teesdale to alston
    a686 alston to haydon bridge
    a689 alston to brampton
    a686 alston to just outside penrith(via hartside summit)
    a couple of random roads above

    heres a route
    b6318 heddon on the wall to kielder,changes to theb6320 at a bridge with traffic lights on it,go across it and go straight ahead at the roundabout,follow to bellingham,go over the bridge then turn left for kielder village(imho)this is 1 of the best roads you can ride on ever,or drive.get to kielder and just keep on going till you come to a t junction(b6357)turn right(p.s your in scotland now)stay on this till you come to thea6088,turn left,to bonchester bridge,turn left again to hawick a698(there is a morrisons and a sainsburys here,(both sell petrol)
    then go down the high street,at the end stay to the left,be carefull as its 1 car at a time as go to the left(you will get what i mean)pick up the b6399(newcastleton)
    stay on this till you come down to the a7,take it down to longtown,then a6071 to brampton(sorry but the a7 and a6071 are boring,but bare with me.
    brampton take the a689 down to alston,beacause everyone knows where alston is,i will leave it up to yourselves where you want to end up. i have cheated a bit (scotland and cumbria)i'm sure if you ride it all will be forgiven.
