Cat & Fiddle
Snake Pass
Woodhead pass

All 3 of these are good but the law is patrolling them most days/weekends, I used to do woodhead in a wagon at night one way loaded = scary, then return empty = great fun.

The coast road between St ives and St just in west cornwall is one of the best Drivers roads in Britain.

Thats the one! I rode all the way up that from Fort William to Alexandria, the descents further along (behind you in the pic) were brilliant, even with the headwinds we were hitting 30-40 mph 8)
