Braes Bayou Trails

Anyone on this forum regularly ride the braes trail?! Looking for people to ride with. I usually hit the trail 5 times a week, if anyone would like to meet up and do a ride together.

Its a little far to ride to from my house but is like to ride it again once all the construction is done building the new sections. I rode it a few years ago and it was still missing some key pieces that connected it all the way from the west end the east end.

I live in Clear Lake. I guess I don't know where the trail is.

The part of Braes Bayou with the trail being discussed here is in Southwest Houston, into the Medical Center area. Look on your smart phone map for N. and S. Braeswood, which run along the bayou. This is mostly urban terrain, not a nice park-like green space trail, though some interesting birds can be seen.

I saw on Facebook that they are beginning work on a west side Brays extension that will take it from the west end at the Fiesta Mart on Gessner northward along the bayou up toward Richmond in the Westchase area, meaning you would conceivably be able to ride from Terry Hershey down through the Walnut Bend neighborhood (i do every day on my commute), carefully cross Westheimer (yikes) at Rogerdale, and make your way down to Richmond and pick up the Brays trail and ride it all the way to the Med Center. I'm game for that.

Wish they'd install some pedestrian/bike bridges over roads like Westheimer though. Seems like a no brainer to me. But, then, things that make sense rarely happen.....
