Has anyone ridden or even driven southwest of Houston, basically looking at Highway 36 south of I-59, from around Needville to Freeport? I know Highway 36 north of I-10 is a nice 2-lane road with full shoulder, and I was wondering if it was the same south of Needville and would be decent for cycling. I am looking for a route where I can ride a solo century, but have never been down in this area before. I know someone who lives near the George Ranch Historical Park, so could park at his house, and then cycle down 762 to 36, then travel SE to the coast and turn around once I hit 50 miles.
I live in SW Houston, so it is easiest for me to drive out of town SW on 59 to find a cycling route rather than going west out I-10 or 290.
If anyone is familiar with this area southwest of Houston I would appreciate some feedback. FWIW, I would probably ride this route on Fridays. Thanks.
