Thanks Texbiker. I'll take a look.
Agree godeacs. But, I've found the frontage roads lightly traveled (in the mornings. I get a lot of weekdays off), nice rolling hills with 1-2 mile long reaches between crossroads, and nice wide paved shoulders. Of course, the downside are the aesthetics of Hwy 1604. Also, the asphalt is very rough. I'm sure it's wearing on the tires and I've had a puncture.
Also, Smithson Valley Road north to FM 1863 and then to New Braunfels. Yes, there is traffic, but it was light from 8:00am to 10:00am on Labor Day. There is also a paved shoulder, although only 1-2 feet wide. Some nice long flat stretches and some real good hills on Smithson! I was in some serious pain on the return! Also I passed (and was passed by) going the other way at least 20 riders.
