Three Bridges Run (B4363)

Entering the Wyre Forest

  Col has been at the Isle of Man TT for the last few weekends, Jon and Rich couldn't make it for one reason or another so I decided as the sun was out and the sky was blue I should keep the EDSBK flag flying and take the R1 out for a run. I planned to go to the usual petrol station in Bridgnorth and decide a route once I got there.
 I left Bridgnorth and found myself riding over the bridge and the river Severn and at the roundabout turning towards Ludlow on the B4364 where we usually head for. Then it hit me I hadn't been along an old favourite route of mine for ages so detoured towards the B4363. I like to think of it as the 3 bridges run.
  The B4363 is 14 miles long and runs between Bridgnorth and Cleobury Mortimer in Shropshire. The road itself is a mostly twisty road that has a lot of elevation changes as it twists it way through the landscape. Each of the 3 bridges are close to or part of near hairpin sharp corners. The road goes through a few villages with 30mph speed limits and passes lots of farms.
   I turned off at the village of Kinlet and headed towards Buttonoak and through the Wyre Forest.As I went through the Forest I noticed 4 Deer standing watching me ride past.
 After going through Bewdley I headed along the A422 and around one of our favourite bends before heading home.
