Northwest Area Riding Routes

Heya folks,

Are there any good hidden routes or decent twisty backroads in the northwest area (290 between Barker Cypress & Bingle/Tidwell)

Thanks in advance.

you ain't gonna find nothing near Bingle/tidwell....you need to travel further west past Mueschke/Field Store Roadish to get decent backroads. up to Old Joseph Rd or head north to the forest.

You don't think there are cops on these types of forums? I know a couple that troll this forum and don't even ride.

So, they know what we do, when we do it and where we do it at! It's not a secret!

359 to 3346 is nice. 3346 is long open curves with plenty of view. If you take 529 towards bellville where it dead ends there are some straight shots with large radius 90s and then some nice hilly twisties going into the valley.

He said he was looking for twisties. He didn't say about out breaking the law speeding. Not everyone looking for a ride route is looking to be a wanna be racer.

Or take 529 all the way back to 290. Not a twistie but long straight shot.

The route I posted has lots of 35 & 40 MPH turns and quite a few 55 MPH turns. The roads are well know to the MH community. I can do the entire route from start to finish in about an hour.

That's not at BORC speeds, but a good moderate pace. To me, it's a nice little ride if I have no other route planned out!
