Houston: MapMyRide courses in Terry Hershey & George Bush Parks
I created some courses in THP and GBP on MapMyRide - I have a free account, so I'm hoping it shows up for everyone and not just for me. I was surprised there didn't seem to be hardly any little challenge courses on either of these much used trails.

I also have no idea how to share them with you publicly. They'll show up on your routes, hopefully. Anyone know?

Does anyone here even use MMR, or does everyone use Strava?

I use Strava.

Might be careful setting up a challenge on a multi-use path where kids walk and ride. There is a big article on Bicycling this month about folks either getting killed or killing others because they were trying to get KOM on Strava and riding inappropriately for their surroundings. 99.9% of the folks will be careful and cautious about it...but that one guy...

Yeah I realize that, but 1 of them is all the way out on the mason creek part of the MUP almost before you get to katy freeway, 1 is going up that hill in THP just past wilcrest that is a mother. the last is near the beltway end of THP where the bathroom/playground is behind that black fence. they should be fine.

there's a reason that nobody else has posted routes on those MUPs.

this is a really bad idea. if you want to go fast and encourage others to do so as well, either get a road bike and ride on the roads or get on the mtb trails.
