Written Directions

Starts Denton ends in McKinney just north of Plano. On the northeast side of Denton, start on E. Sherman Drive heading north east continue and the road turns due east and changes names to W. Sherman Drive and goes into Aubrey, TX. Stay on road as it changes names to E Sherman Drive and now heads north up to Pilot Point. Then head east on Rt 455 through Celina and on to Rt 94 which continues heading east and changes names to W FM 455 and takes you into Weston. Now get on Rt 543 and take that south to the route's end in McKinney. Suggest you refer to the map above!!

Scenery

This route covers old small towns with historic buildings, bidges with creeks reaching out over large fields. Few Straight aways with a nice selection of wide and tight twisty turns.

Road Quality

Overall the entire road is well kept with no rough patches or potholes. Keep in mind since its in the country after rain or high winds be careful on twist in case dust or rocks may have a chance to be on the road. Well built country twisty roads.

Roadside Amenities

Being out in the country your only going to find small gas stations spaced out along with some great little mom and pop resturants. Will list them when I remember the names.

This was an awesome ride. I was expecting more twisties but the long straights are great. I will definitely be doing this route again. It's hard to find good twisties in DFW. There were a couple construction zones but nothing major. And it's best to top off your tank in celina. Once you hit Weston, there isn't another gas station until you hit 75. I made the mistake of not filling up and had to coast through Weston

455 East of Preston (289) is fun for a few miles but becomes a gravel pit where they are resurfacing; currently 2 miles east of Weston. I like to head north on Preston (289) to Gunter. High speed limits and open road make for a nice relaxing blast past farms and a few gas stations. Next time I am up there I will try taking Main (121) as an alternate way of getting east to 75.

Route was an enjoyable round trip ride on 04/11/15. Stopped at Lucy's on the Square in Celina for lunch (also recommended). I started the route in McKinney. Due to road construction, Laud Howell Pkwy (543) was accessed via Hwy 75 north bound frontage road from Bloomdale Rd. Ride safe.

This is a nice easy afternoon ride with two picturesque villages/towns.

The roads are generally good(smooth surfaces) although on 11/1/14 we encountered quite a few sections where there is resurfacing going on which reduced the speed on some of the 'curvy bits'.

Riding on a Sunday afternoon there was very little traffic and when we did encounter anyone there are plenty of straights to pass.

This is the sort of route you could do time and time again to practice technique. I'm thinking or reposting after adding a few more hours of roads to make it a day ride.

We took this trip today. 10/04/2015. It was nice. Weather was good and we ate Pedro's Tex-Mex a Grill in Pilot Point, TX. It was great and we will do it again. We went from McKinney to Pilot Point and then home down 380 and 75. other than the part of 380 and 75 it was great!
