    Morning all,

    Picked up my M3 F80 a month ago.

    Any decent roads around Bournemouth/Poole and other areas?

    Someone mentioned Cranbourne Roads outside Wimborne are worth checking out.

    Thanks

    New Forest is lovely

    You will likely see me by Banks Road and round Lilliput a lot.

    The new forest is not driving roads though due to the new forest ponies roaming freely and a 40mph limit everywhere so other than a lovely day out I wouldn’t recommend that for a drive.

    The B3081 out of Shaftesbury up Zig Zag hill is a great road but not that long . Blandford to Shaftesbury via the “top road” via Compton Abbas airfield is also good as is Cranbourne out to Salisbury on the A354.

    The road from Weymouth to Bridport if you take the coastal road is probably the best for views. Chesil beach looks amazing from this road.

    Sorry I drive to enjoy the road and scenery. I got the wrong end of the stick. I don’t drive to speed and go mad.

    Yeah I visited New Forest last week! Great views and took some amazing photos. Driving along with the ponies running alongside was unreal, straight out of a movie it felt like.

    I actually drove the A36 back on the way home past Salisbury, and those roads were a lot good fun but very bumpy..

    I will check out the other places mentioned thanks.

    Any good driving roads or scenic locations is welcome, anything to get me out in the car more
