I seek the wisdom of the mighty BCF.
Thinking about my options for my summer outings.

So is the Scilly Isles and a road on it the UKís most southerly road.
Or? Is it St Clements in the Channel island of Jersey?

My only criteria is that it is a public road, thanks Thumbs Up

Gibraltar is the only British overseas territory to be technically part of the union, but it is not a member: the UK is responsible for all external interests. Gibraltar is also excluded from the customs union and the common agricultural policy.

Possibly, also.

If you want to stick to the mainland then you're going to Cornwall.

= Jersey (but I'm really not sure it's worth riding that road just for the sake of it...)

Don't bother with Jersey as a riding destination. 11,000 cars on an island 5x9 miles with most roads 15 and 20mph limit and few overtaking spots. There's only one 40mph piece of road about half a mile long the rest are slower. Oh and the parking everywhere is a nightmare.

Fantastic place to visit, full of history, REALLY great food, lovely people but a riding destination it ain't.

Hmm? Maybe not the greatest riding destination, I can see your point.
However, bike + telescopic fishing rod + the Jersey coast = a good few days away Thumbs Up .
And ití A tick off the list ie all four points of the British Isles Thumbs Up

Sounds like a win win for me.
