At 16.70 miles I reached State Highway 6 and the large West Oak Mall. The next 3 miles found me on a busy 3 lane road with residential on my left and nothing but what was, at the time, nothing but mystery on my right.
( Part 1 of my journey along Westheimer Road is here: http://www.madmacedonian.com/2013/05/the-cycling-dude-vs-westheimer-road-in-houston-1.html )
At 20 miles I finally reached the spot where Harris County gives way to Fort Bend County, at Barker Cypress rd.
Now, here, you could grab a snack at a nearby Kroger, or eat at the Sonic sit-in diner, but what the hell sort of celebration of your accomplishment would that be to tell your friends about?
Instead, head on out FM1093, next to the toll road, another 2 ¼ miles, just beyond Grand Mission Blvd., to a wonderful 40 yr. old (family owned the last 7 yrs.) biker bar & grill, in Richmond, TX.
