B3081 Cann Common to Tollard Royal (Zig Zag Hill)

After reading about Zig Zag Hill in this article, and having done several of the other roads listed, I felt duty bound to try it out.

Sadly, however, it did not live up to expectations. Oddly enough, going downhill was slightly better, but although it was very bendy, it wasn't very long.

Something I've heard before. :|

It is also a bloody long way from anywhere, so if you're in the neighbourhood, it's worth doing it just to try out the King John Inn, but otherwise I wouldn't bother. The A686 from Penrith to Alston is a much better bet.

do you actually like driving at all or are cars to you just a manifestation of some sort of pathological mother complex ?

I was also slightly disappointed with Zig-zag, however as part of the drive we did it was all part of a great day with some stunning scenery- mind you I know Spokey doesn't do scenery :wink:
