Is there a better route between Crewkerne & Sherborne?

Post by Jug_Inspector » Aug 13th, '17, 17:03

Rode a route this afternoon which turned out to be a pretty good route for a trip.

Problem is the part that follows the A30 from Crewkerne to Yeovil was painful as there seemed like loads of 20 mph zones. My GPS didn't tracklog so I can't see exactly where they were... but they were on this stretch.

So is there a better route that is interesting (not the A303) to get to the A30 near the Yeovil golf club (anywhere after)?

Other than that it was a pretty nice route. 3-4 hours with stops and some nice fast bits too.
Coffee at Portland Bill, burger at West bay.
Lofted the front wheel accidentally over a bump in the road for the first time (in 5th I think), which felt nice.. must be getting use to the SD now 8)

Try this, mostly reasonable leafy lanes, not much in the way of lower speed limits but you won't be doing more than 60 a lot of the time either:-

I know there's a bit of 303 in it, but it's about 3 miles - if that.

Did some of that coming back from Seaton yesterday
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?
