Did anyone else get wet on the ride home? I guess I should have worn something besides my mesh jacket. Fortunately, I was wearing my FirstGear rain pants. Did you know that, those things don't work so well if you have the vents open???? Who knew?
It belongs to a friend of mine, a used book store on 2351. I help out once in a while when she's got to do something. She's helping another friend who just learned of nasopharyngeal cancer or something like that.
This is a general route that I would use to generally stay off freeways but be on Spur 5 for a short distance.
From Washington and Studemont, go south and then left on West Gray. Follow West Gray for a few blocks past Main then turn left and go 2-3 blocks and turn right at Pierce. Stay on Pierce until past Dowling where you merge left for 45 but stay to the left all the way south which puts you on Spur 5 not 45.
Spur 5 ends at OST (old 90) where you turn left. Going east the first light is Wheeler where you turn right. Take Wheeler and it merges into Telephone Rd. A few blocks south on Telephone Rd turn left at Winkler Dr. Stay on Winkler past the next light (Woodridge) and turn into the back side of Dot's which is next to Papas BBQ.
If you don't want to get on Spur 5 that soon, stay on Studemont and it becomes Montrose. When you get to Westheimer go left. Follow Westheimer and it becomes Elgin. Stay on Elgin past U of H where it meets Spur 5. Go right and follow the directions to OST.
Thank you Chuck for the detailed directions. David is concerned it's too far for a new rider like me to go in morning traffic. Next time you guys decide to meet in the Heights or near by, I'll come join you.
