Please tell me about FM 3090

Good Afternoon all,

I am on the steering committee of a charity bicycle ride in the area. They are currently creating / revising routes. One of the routes goes North along FM 3090. I understand this this road is rather popular on weekends. I was wondering just how much traffic is there on this road on a Saturday. Should I try to keep the bikes off of this road?

I know many of you would rather just keep the bikes off of ALL the roads. Alas, we all know that won't happen, but we can try to keep them off the busier roads.

Thanks,
Jeff

I've never had a problem with them riding on the roads unless you talk about when they have mistakenly started riding 3 or 4 wide, as if they are on the tour do France. That's generally when the problems start.

Re: Please tell me about FM 3090

Thanks for the responses. We remind everyone before the start about riding no more than two abreast, but there are always some who don't listen.

Fortunately, 3090 would be about the halfway point on the 100 mile route, so the riders will be well spread out. I don't think having them 3 or 4 wide will be much of a problem at that point.

Regards,
Jeff

Re: Please tell me about FM 3090

I've not been on the end near Navasota lately, but they were working on it and it was closed. That started back in February I think. It is probably done, but you might want to be sure.

The time you have bikes there might be a factor. Any time after lunch you might have some glassy eyed motorcycle riders coming back from Yankees Tavern. If you are early in the day, to beat the heat, I would not expect it to be that busy.

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

3090 is still closed right out of Navasota...road is very narrow with no shoulder...lots of blind corners that could be dangerous for bicyclist...

Re: Please tell me about FM 3090

Hey Jeff !! I am on a couple of boards around here (TWT, Motohouston) and if I spot that we have a ride going along any of the more popular roads (3090, Racer Road etc) I will post up a notice on the boards warning the Sunday Morning Racers to be aware of the bikes.
