Need areas to ride in and around Houston

Where are the best areas around Houston to ride that are paved? I would like to stay off main streets. I have a road bike so dirt or gravel is not good. Thanks for the help in advance.

Check out the Houston Cycling Club on Meetup.com. Also Northwest Cycling Club. They have a ride every Saturday. There are other clubs around town too.

Spring is kind of out there a ways so I'm not familiar with the area. If you're ever down on the west side near George Bush Park, there's plenty of paved no-vehicle paths to be had.

Hi David, I live in the Spring Branch area but mainly ride at Hershey Park or Memorial Park (Picnic Lane). Both places have asphalt or concrete. Hershey Park is kinda messed up right now east of Kirkwood but the rest of it going west is good. I'll ride Hershey Park out to the dam and ride along the part of the dam that is parallel to I-10. A lot of road bikers ride there. I do ride a Trek Hybrid (which I love) but do pretty good speeds for my age. Speeds vary all over the place because of the trail. I've been riding for about 10 months. I went to a bike trail on White Oak Bayou and start there around TC Jester & Ella Blvd.. There is a bike shop there to park. I rode it briefly one day and the bike way is really nice and wide and was impressed with what I saw. I'm going to go there again sometime and do a longer ride but would prefer to ride with someone since I don't know it very well. On generally flat roads, I ride between 13 and 14 mph. depending on the wind of course big time for me. I did go to the Buffalo Bayou Park downtown and didn't really care for it because there were just too many people, pets and buildings for me however the concrete bike path is great and wide but parking is hard to find. This is my first post and hope you can check out some of these places.
