Hehe, don't listen to me. I'm barely dry behind the ears myself. Heck, at 33, I still get carded most of the time. Only difference now is that I'm starting to like it.
I'll ride behind all of you and let you know how your butts lookpacman1 said:So how 'bout getting a Burleson/Cleburne/Johnson Co. contingent together for the ride to ponder? Since the roads are going to be boring, I would appreciate some nice bike to look at while we ride. We can make our own scenery.
I'm game - what time and where the heck is the Starbucks in Burleson?pacman1 said:Let's see, I guess the JC folks could meet at Starbucks Burleson, the hop on 1187 up to I20, then to Starbucks I20/820 to meet some Ft Worth folks, then slab it on 820 over to 156, then run that on up to Ponder. Not a very exciting route, but what did you expect?
I'll have to find exactly where it is, but it's north of 820/I-35. I passed one last weekend.pacman1 said:TexasShadow, give us some more detail about where that Starbucks is. And please, DON'T give us any details about how our butts look. TMI! TMI! Keep your fantasies to yourself.
Starbuck's is on the Southwest corner of I-35W and Western Center Blvd.TexasShadow said:I'll have to find exactly where it is, but it's north of 820/I-35. I passed one last weekend.
its on 174 right across from Rosa's and right next to that super Exxon.Gilk51 said:I'm game - what time and where the heck is the Starbucks in Burleson?
Well, there probably IS one there, too. We could make a game out of hitting every one between Burleson and Denton...pacman1 said:I35 and Western Center. I was thinking it was on west loop closer Benbrook. That being the case, perhaps we should just scoot up I35? What do you guys think? I'm fine with taking the scenic route if the group is game.
Either works for me since I pass the SB in Lake Worth on my way to 820.Gilk51 said:Well, there probably IS one there, too. We could make a game out of hitting every one between Burleson and Denton...
Saturday is not a good day for I35 (OK, which day is?). Isn't there a Starbucks in Lake Worth? Maybe meet there and then take some backroads...

Meet up at your favorite Starbuck's then:
Head out to the intersection of FM1187 and Hwy377 southwest of Benbrook.
Used to be called "Whisky Flats".
Jog east to turn North on FM1187 toward Aledo.
Pass thru Aledo and cross I-20. (Road becomes CR3325)
Continue North to Stop Sign (Intersection with FM1886)
Go North thru the intersection (30mph) on FM3325 (Church Rd)
Turn Right on FM730 toward Azle.
In Azle, continue straight under Hwy 199 and follow road around to the right as you pass the US Post Office.
Turn left at the Traffic light beside the Sonic to return to Northbound FM730.
Just before Boyd, turn Right on CR4668? (that's what Google shows)
Go East to the T intersection with FM718.
Left on FM718 to Hwy114.
Right on Hwy114 into Rhome.
Left on Business 287.
Follow it North (becomes US287 service road) to FM407.
Turn Right on FM 407 to Justin.
(watchout for the turns in Denton County. the pavement is rough)
Turn Left in Justin on Hwy156 and proceed North to Ponder.
"Texas Shadow" could meet up at CR3325 and FM1886. I think that is her fireworks stand.
Just a thought.............
