Place to ride near Westchase?

I have a friend that just picked up her first bike and she lives off Westheimer/Beltway area. I meet her up quite often to ride but I don't know where to go and we always end up on some boring/dangerous road.

I'd be surprised, but are there any decent places over in that area? Looking for less congested twisty roads.

Used to work right there. Can't think of any good roads ''round there. Whatever you do, stay away from Bellaire on either side of BW8.

Yeah Figured that out real quick. Same thing goes for Richmond and Westheimer.

Girl friend and I live right there in the area. I usually go for a nice slow cruise on on briarforest from dairy ashford for the little section of trees to beltway feeder north > right on memorial. Ride memorial all the way down to downtown and loop back on Allen parkway.

That's a good route for going cruising at night. The view of downtown at night is awesome. Just be aware of the popo in the Memorial area between BW-8 and Voss Rd.

That sounds like a good route. I'll give it a try this weekend.

I think it's safe just to give up on any technical roads in the area though

Memorial Drive, as long as your not speeding its good. Lots of good soft ditches to crash in too

Your really not that far off from 359 area. Hit it up from 90 and take it up through Waller. Decent twisties and minimal traffic.

Try riding over to i-10 west & ride out to Brookshire & take fm 359 & go through Fulshear & Siminton & back to Brookshire. [ it is a loop with some nice curves & scenery ] minium traffic except watch out for bicyclist on Saturday mornings.

There are a ton of bike riders out there Saturday! But a good route for sure.

For sho , Hwy 36 from I-10 TO HWY 59 is another good route also.
I hadn't rode that route in about a year though.

Take Briar Forest east like you're headed into town. Just after Blalock it turns into San Felipe, but you'll want to take the left fork in the road to get on Memorial. Take Memorial down through Memorial Park into downtown. Turn right on Bagby and go down to Lamar which turns into Allen Parkway. Turn right on Allen Parkway and take that down to Shepherd. Turn right on Shepherd to get back to Memorial. Once on Memorial, stay on it till it turns into Woodway, then down to San Felipe and this will put you back on Briar Forest.

Enjoy.

I assumed if they meet up quite often, then she at least knows how to get from point A to point B. If you live in the heart of Westchase, there are no "less congested twisty roads". I've taken this route many times on an early sat/sun morning and it's actually really nice.

Westheimer runs parellel to I-10 and the two never cross. Westheimer is one long straight with nothing but back to back lights and a million businesses where cars are pulling in and out of. It is the exact opposite of "less congested twisty roads" he was asking for, even before rush hour.

You should try the route I posted on an early morning. It's no racer's road or a forest ride, but if you're stuck in Westchase, its definitely better than Westheimer to I-10 and back.
