    Hey folks,

    I'm riding over to Silverstone this year on small capacity bikes with a bunch of mates. Does anyone have a good route suggestion (avoiding motorways)? I've ridden over before but I horsed it straight to the track. We don't mind stopping over somewhere enroute for a night or two :)

    Cheers in advance,
    Pete

    Mate of mine gets the Dublin ferry and heads over the Welsh mountains. Not sure if the exact route but it's a start...

    Ive only been to SS via the motorway, but have travelled to Birmingham once via Dublin, Holyhead through North Wales and it was good, but didn't do the mountains.

    Sounds like a fun trip for sure; chin on the tank, slipstreaming your mates down the hills.

    Try the RAC route planner. Something like Holyhead to Silverstone and click advanced options, avoid motorways. Or ferry to Liverpool and go from there. Its a bit closer.

    cheers, yeah I've stuck it into google maps to avoid motorways. It would be cool if someone knew of anywhere worth stopping for the night enroute etc

    I stopped in Chester once to waste half a day before getting the boat. Nice town and friendly people but can't for the life of me remember the name of the place I stayed, lol.
