|Scoping Out New Work Commute Routes|
With the multi-use path through George Bush Park and Terry Hershey Park I can ride most of the roughly 16 miles car free. I was hoping there would be an exit from Terry Hershey right next to my new office but there wasn't. If I exit at Enclave Parkway it is a fairly short ride to Briar Forrest Rd and there is a bike lane. Always a welcome sight to see a bike lane
|Bike Lane on Enclave Parkway|
The shortest and quickest route is to skip Terry Hershey and instead take Briar Forrest from the end of George Bush park. Unfortunately the bike lane on Briar Forrest has a lot of debris and sections where construction has blocked the path. As nice as it is to see a bike lane, sometimes in Houston they can be pretty impractical. So my choices are the winding , and in the early evening crowded with joggers, dog walkers, families, etc Terry Hershey path, and Briar Forrest with its less than stellar bike path and rush hour cars. Guess that will be a game time decision. Either way I am looking forward to commuting via bike again.
