    Porter/kingwood

    I have lived in Downtown Houston for years but will be moving into the Porter area off of Ford road just north of Kingwood.
    Not familiar with riding in the area....any of y'all ride that area?
    wife and I both ride road bikes and spend a lot of time on the MUT's along white oak bayou off TC Jester and Allen Parkway lately.

    Porter? You won't see much road kill on your rides. The locals snap that up pretty quick.

    When you get there you'll see FM roads like 1314 and 242 that have good shoulders, pretty much all west of 59. Flat as a pancake.

    We start moving in this weekend, so I will be busy the next few weekends... but won't be long and I will be checking those roads out... I am old and slow so flat will not be too boring for me for awhile...at least not until I have seen the same scenery a few times...I will be 3 miles east of 59 off Ford road, so 1314 is the next major road north.

    There is a bike barn out on fm1960 near lake houston which does this ride around the lake every saturday am around 7am. I've done it several times...there is a starbucks at the halfway and they usually stop there. Good place to start maybe. Also very flat! speeds are from 20+ down to 15/16ish.
