I grew up in the area and visit about once a year; however, I'm ignorant when it comes to places to bike. When I was young, you could head East on Coit road and ride for miles without any traffic. Obviously, that's not the case anymore. I'm planning on doing a Saturday morning ride in Cleburne (July 27th) but am looking for options during the week leading up to it.
I did the White Rock Lake route last year and, while nice at parts, it wasn't completely conducive to road biking. I'm looking for more of an open road route and/or group ride. I came across a Wednesday night ride somewhere in Plano (bike shop). Anyone have any suggestions? I don't mind driving a bit - i.e. Allen, Plano, Rockwall, Sachse, if it leads to be a better ride. I don't want to be dodging cars.
