Fort Worth, Texas commuting route?
I'm on the southside of Fort Worth, trying to bike to work on the west side of downtown.
I live near Sycamore School and I35 (near the new Mrs. Baird's Bread bakery) and work near 7th and University (nearish the old Mrs. Baird's
It's 15 miles door to door if I go up 35 to 30 then University. But I can't ride that way, nor would I want to.
I can't figure out how I'd commute by bike.
I could go north on Hemphill, or McCart/Forest Park, from Alta Mesa, but both of those streets look pretty crowded with cars during rush hour.
As far as I know there is no bike path available going north to downtown.
If I can get to Berry Street I can cut over through the zoo and onto the bike path there, take it up to 7th and then I'm almost to work, I just can't figure out how to get to the zoo from my house.
Anyone know of a good way to get to downtown from the southside?
It'll probably be a few weeks before I actually commute, assuming I can find a safe route. Been a few years since I last rode my bike, so I'm getting back into the swing of things gentley. Riding in the evenings, brought a beater bike in to work to ride to and from lunch, riding on the weekends, stuff like that.
