3. Mont Ventoux to L’Alpe-d’Huez, France
Located in the mountainous region of Provence in southern France, Mont Ventoux is popular with cyclists and motorists alike. The route has been made famous through its uses in the Tour de France. The surrounding areas are popular ski destinations in the winter due to the Alpine Mountains. The route is made challenging by its steep climb and hairpin bends. The views are captivating and attract thousands of tourists annually.
4. Trollstigen, Norway
Much like Mount Ventoux, Trollstigen is renowned for its steep incline and tight ends. Located in the Rauma Municipality in Norway the road stretches across a serpentine mountain range. The bends are so narrow that many had to be widened to accommodate the high volumes of traffic. At peak season 2,500 cars pass daily. One of the biggest attractions is the Stigfossen waterfall. The fall can be viewed from several balconies on a 700m plateau and cark park.

Route 66 is 3,939 km of American history. The road connects America’s Midwest to the West coast. The vast landscape is punctuated with small communities, truck stops and beautiful art deco signage. It is a once in a life time journey, that has been mythologised in TV and film. So much so that the mere mention of Route 66 signifies adventure, escapism and the American dream. The iconic stretch of road is ideal for motorbikes with flat horizons that have seemingly endless stretches.
