Hmmm...we live out in the country, so I just use the dirt roads. I would hate to ride a bike much in Lubbock, because the drivers, as a whole, don't seem to watch for motorcycles and bicycles. emoticon

If you want to just ride for exercise, a lot of people park at Church on the Rock out on south Slide and ride out Slide and along FM 1585 or Slide to Slide community or New Home. There are wide shoulders along those roads. Very rural though-no stores or phones (or public restrooms). Contact the Lubbock bike club or ask at one of the bike stores. Be very careful in the Canyon Lakes area and esp. Mackenzie Park (don't go alone). My son and husband mountain bike at Canyon Lakes and have "run into" people on foot up on the trails just kind of hanging out...

Ok, I thought I was crazy there!

I think on my ride this past weekend I actually found a relatively decent way out of the loop. I followed the canyon and lakes bike path on the north side of town and it took me out of the loop. The path actually goes a fair distance out and into MacKenzie Park. Next time: a good way out of the loop on the west side...

:D

Well, this is coming a bit late! I've been out of town and away from the messageboards for a couple of weeks.

You may have figured this out already, but the only way in/out of the loop is to use the underpasses at the major streets. I just ride on the sidewalks there; it's not actually leagal, of course, but that way you don't get killed by traffic! And it's not like there are a ton of pedestrians.

I didn't know there was a map of all the bike lanes in town-- that's good to know! Normally I just ride through neighbourhoods, and avoid the major streets. Sometimes I run across a bike lane by accident. :)

emoticon to Lubbock, I've heard about the bicycle lanes too but haven't seen any.
I'm sure someone will be able to help you out.

Hello everyone!

I just moved to the area a few weeks ago and I was wondering if anyone knows of a good way to travel in/out of the loop by bicycle. I found the map on the city's website with all of the bicycle lanes and routes, which is really handy, but I don't recall seeing a path that will take me in/out of the loop.

Any ideas?
