    Where to ride...

    I know this is the MTB forum, but the road forum looks a little dead. I will be working in Houston for a few weeks and plan to ride Memorial, and Ant Hills when I can, but if I just need to get in a road ride on a weekday, where is a good place? Is there a regular tuesday nighter? Is there a good strech of road to ride that is bike friendly where I might hook up with other riders?

    incase you didn't know this already Houston sucks for bike riding if your a roadie you either do laps around the picnic loop at MP during the week or a group ride outa west end bike ship or hit one of the local weekend rides outa zube park that the NW cyclery puts on or the WO ride out of the west oaks mall or you can drive up to chappel hill and do that one.

    since im' not a roadie or ever claim to be you might wanna call west end and ask one of the mechanics where some road riding can be done here in houston

    Also,
    Depending on the area of town that you are staying, there are several rides throughout the week in the Woodlands area with varying degrees of difficulty.

    It depends on what side of town you are on. I ride my road bike during the week on the pavement at Terry Hershey Park...If you know where the Anthill are, then you know where this is. Beware of pedestrians.

    You can also ride at Bear Creek Park on the roads through the park. Very little traffic. Not an organized ride.

    The West End Ride is good, if you don't mind urban. Many do this on a road bike, however, there are many fat tires out too. Memorial Park Picnic loop is a bit over 1 mile...it's not toooo boring if you hook up with people. It's closed to cars after 3 or 4 pm.

    Good luck!
