taking the ferry from Bolivar into Galveston is usually not a problem and they are bike friendly. Leaving Galveston on the ferry can be quite a wait. Going to Galveston thru High Island is a nice ride.
I would be interested in this and will watch the tread for updates.
Anyone interested in the Hard Hat tour too?
This answered my question. I see it is 20 miles from high island to sea rim park. Hurricane Jerry in 1989 resulted in closure. If I had the proper equipment (a certain yahama 2 wheeled vehicle) seems like a great place to escape about half way through.You do not want to make the hard hat tour till late fall , also it used to be possible to ride the beach to Port Arthur at low tide , I’ve done it on my Cagiva and 950 but it’s been over ten years ago . There was a stretch thru there that required extream focus , it could be pretty ugly at times .
I’m possibly in for this.
Actually, I’ve been intending to visit this site.
I planned for it to be the last stop of a route starting at Gonzalez. The Texas Runaway Scrape Route. The route that Sam Houston & the Texican army took after the Alamo & ended at the battle of San Jacinto took them 6 weeks. Modern GPS shows it to be a 6 hour ride.
Public visits to the 107-year-old Battleship Texas near Houston will be limited during cataloging of thousands of artifacts on board amid plans for $35 million in ship repairs and then relocation.www.nbcdfw.com
