TexBiker's advice plus Ike's.
Northern route has a few hills and is much more scenic.
Also, I would recommend starting out on like a Tues am around 3-5am, beating traffic out of town.
Don't want to deal with I10, I35, 1604, SA traffic during rush. This route north of I10 will avoid some of the nastiest, though.
Punch out of SA north of I10 to Seguin, Luling, old hwy 90/service road to LaGrange, Bellville, Hempstead, Magnolia, cut through Houston/I45 between Conroe and the Woodlands, pass south of Cleveland, on in to Beaumont.
Let us know how the ride works out for you.
