Britain’s favourite biking routes revealed
Filed under: News
It’s official. Motorbike fans across the UK have voted Scotland’s Glen Coe and the A82 as Britain’s favourite scenic biking route in a survey of over 1,500 bikers recently conducted by DVLA Personalised Registrations.
Bealach na Ba, situated just off the A696, and the stunning surroundings of the Heights of Kinlochewe found along the A832, were noted as bikers’ second and third most popular routes, positioning Scotland as home to the nation’s top three bike vistas.
Wales also proved a hit, with bikers nominating Horseshoe Pass on the A542 as their fourth favourite vista, closely followed by Shropshire’s striking Clee Hill on the A4117 which is the number one choice in England.
Visitors to the DVLA Personalised Registrations stand at this year’s International Motorcycle and Scooter Show can see video footage of each of the UK’s top ten vistas* and collect a free stress busting CD-ROM featuring still and video images of each route, shot by renowned bike photographer, Chippy Wood.
The CD-ROM allows users to display their favourite vista on their computer and with more than 50 of the world’s leading motorcycles to choose from, uniquely combine it with the dream machine of their choice.
Additionally, visitors can search over 24 million registrations using DVLA’s fully interactive touch screens, featuring virtual “plate-making” technology, which will enable users to view their ideal number plate on a bike of their choice.
Louise Pierpoint, marketing manager for DVLA Personalised Registrations commented: “We have thoroughly enjoyed conducting the bike vista survey and truly believe that visitors to our stand will be amazed by the breathtaking scenery on show.”
Those unable to attend the show can download the top ten bike vistas and search for their perfect personalised registration by logging onto DVLA’s official website www.dvlaregistrations.co.uk.
