  • Both Wrynose and hardknott are a piece of cake. Don't believe the hype. So long as you stay aware of the road conditions and what's going on around you it's easy and fun. Though I have to admit, I would hate to do it towing a trailer or at the night of tourist season as the roads are incredibly narrow and the hairpins are interesting to try and navigate your way around should you have traffic meeting you there. The views at both are spectacular and do have the strange ability to make you feel quite insignificant. Edit: NOT for the novice rider/driver and the gradients you will encounter are steeper in places than your imagination will allow you to perceive making hull starts hard on your clutch so try to avoid them.
  • Not for the faint hearted,this road is near too impossible to navigate ,be warnen & take extra care.
  • excellent drive
