Anybody know of any good routes in the North Texas area? I just bought a bike a few months ago and I'm still looking for good routes. preferably with as many twisties as possible.

Once I find it I can post the route for a ride I went on not too long ago. It starts in Denton (where I live) and heads out to around the Sherman area. I was surprised but there are actually some decent roads between here and there. Unfortunately the weather is supposed to be wet (again) this weekend. :-(

EDIT:
I sure wouldn't mind getting together for a ride once the weather clears up and meet some of y'all (hey it is Texas!).

Well crapola! For the life of me I cannot find the piece of paper with the route I mentioned. That sucks. I may be able to get a copy from the cycle shop here in town that organized the ride. But if you saw my office (the mess) you might understand!

Hah! I found it. The route was still in my inside jacket pocket. Anyhow here it is...

Starting in Denton:
I35 to Loop 288 East
Loop 288 East to exit for FM428
FM428 East to Aubrey
FM428 thru Aubrey to FM1385 (turn right) 1/2 mile
FM1385 to FM428 again (turn left)
FM428 to FM455 to Celina
FM455 thru Weston to Anna (Hwy 5)
Hwy5 north (turn left) 1/2 mile to FM2862 (turn right)
FM2862 to Westminster (FM533)
FM533 turn left to FM3133 (north-west)
FM3133 to Hwy5 again, Van Alstyne
Hwy5 turn right (north to Howe)

Howe was the destination. We had lunch at a place called Finn's. Good catfish!

Return route:
FM902 East to Tom Bean and Hwy11
Hwy11 (turn left) West/North to FM697 (turn right, East)

to FM 2450 Bolivar (turn left) South
FM2450 South to Krum FM 1173 (turn left)
FM1173 East to I35 (back in Denton)

EDIT:
I will add that even though we cut the ride a little short we still put on over 170 miles...
