Hi, we just moved here from St. Louis, MO 3 months ago, and are still trying to know this area. One thing I like about Plano is that I live close enought to commute to work by bike. I have been doing that for that last month or so.
billycwu - WELCOME TO BIKEFORUMS! I'm just down the road from you near the Dallas/Richardson line. There are lots of road cyclists in the area.
If you haven't made a stop at Richardson Bike Mart (corner of Coit and Campbell) do so soon! Great folks and lots of pretty bikes to look at. They also have rides every Saturday morning starting at the store.
There's quite a few DFW BF members, even one of the Mods is a Dallas area resident. Good group of guys who ride together fairly frequently. Send me a PM any time you want info on rides, etc. We also have recently opened a regional forum (Texas = Southwest) with lots of info on upcoming rides, etc.
P.S. - if you don't see many cyclists out and about this weekend, we're all out in Wichita Falls for the biggest ride of the season: Hotter Than Hell Hundred!

yes yes, i just found out about that ride a week ago, i don't think i am ready for that yet. i will try to go next year. heard so much about richardson bike mart, will sure to visit it soon. Thanks.
I passed on the HHH last year, and made the Cotton Patch Classic my first metric century after getting into road cycling. It's a good ride that's not too far away, in Greenville, Tx. Maybe about an hour and 10mins out of the Plano area. I've started a thread about the ride in the Southwest regional forum.
Welcome, I am at Custer/190 and ride with Cuda quite a bit. You need to hook up with us for a ride. Also, Rick Gurney and the guys over at Plano Cycling and Fitness (http://planocycling.com/) are a great bunch as well. Feel free to PM if you have any questions about the area, etc., as I was born and raised in the Richardson/Plano area

ah, this is great... well, actually i am riding my mountain bike most of the time right now... i lost my front wheel last year (forgot to put in the car after a lunch ride, pretty stupid... :) ). Anyway, i just visited the southwest forum, and you guys really got me excited, will buy a front wheel very soon.

+1, jsharr,do you go off-roading?
Not much anymore, mainly roadie stuff close to home. Takes to much time to get to trails. Used to ride with Dorba alot in my single days though. Any you?
Just irvings/dallas lb houston. Im planning on going sunday though. I hope it's fine. I want to check out Northshore grapevine lake or rowlett. have you been there?
Ridden and worked at northshore, good stuff. read good stuff about rowlett. My favorite dorba ride ever was a trip to a state park on the river in Waco.
