|I'll be up from Houston for a wedding Saturday, Oct 4 and don't want to skip my ride. 18-26mph and 40-60 miles is what we usually run down here Saturdays in the Clear Lake area, so thats what I'm looking for...you know, a typical club ride.|

|Thanks...I'll be staying only 3 miles away at the Radisson on Campbell @ HWY-75. Is Campbell OK to ride on, or full of psycho-drivers?|

|Not knowing your city riding skills, I'd caution you to stay off of Campbell. It's a 6-lane posted 50 MPH main suburban / shopping area thouroughfare, with many uncontrolled residential intersections and barely sentient SUV auto pilots.
I'd head North on the 75 frontage road, about 1/2 mile, then head West (Left) on Renner Road. Go South (Left) on Waterview Pkwy. back to Campbell. This limits your exposure to about 5 blocks of Campbell.
|Campbell Road is OUT then...thanks (nm)||hycobob|
