Written Directions

Start in Mansfield TX lonstar off HWY 287 lonestar RD is 157 (Twisties Repaved Smooth) will lead you to Venus TX and HWY 67 take a right to HWY 35w in Alvarado TX. Take another Right Heading North toward FT Worth. Exit 30 for (FM 917) this road is smooth (Twisties) with moderate Traffic. This will take you to Joshua TX. Take a left at the light Road is S Broadway aka HWY 174. Take that to Cleburne TX. Keep going you will pass Hwy 67. Past that you will keep left. After the Bridge you will look for Hwy 171 this road is pretty smooth with looong Straights with little curves. Low to mid traffic.take that all the way to Hillsboro TX. If you need fuel this is a good place to get it. After fuel turn Right on ELM. Then right again on FM 309. Twisties Again by corn fields. LOW traffic. Caution Corn is tall some corners are blind almost 90 degree turns. Come to a tricky part left at 934 then right on 3049 both of these are almost back to back so it just feels like the same loop. Continue to Hwy 174 take a right then you will head back into Cleburne TX. There you have 67 to take to alvarado to hit 35W to FT worth or take 67 to dallas. Be Safe.

Scenery

This is a nice County ride for City riders that want to get out on Sport bikes and with a little scenery of the county. Good Scenery not the best until you get to 171 then you have wide open view of the farms and Fields.

Drive Enjoyment

Most roads are really good especially at the start this patch is being repaved est 90 percent complete. Smooth as silk. Most is smooth for the most part. This is not just for Sportbikes - also for Cruisers.

Tourism Opportunities

There is plenty to eat from the Start Whataburger and some county style cooking in Venus. Alvarado and Cleburne have ALmost everything fast food wise. Once you hit Hillsboro there are all the outlets that you can handle like nike and fossil. Have a blast Explore the country.

This was an awesome route. My wife and I rode, and we had a lot of fun. We did take a few wrong turns but added more fun to the route. We also went and took a ride round Cleburne State park. We cover 210 miles from start to finish...

I rode majority of this route a couple of weeks ago and it is a great ride! plenty of twisties! some of the turns are slightly off-camber so be careful. I rode between 70-90 mph the entire route and i was fairly comfortable. A few of the roads are a little bumpy through the turns but nothing major as long as you aren't riding like a bat out of hell. All in all, this is an awesome route! enjoy the scenery and the roads and as long as you ride at about 70-75% you are GOLDEN!!

Great Route with lots of sweepers! Not many back and forth turns but plenty of great turns regardless! Light traffic for a great Saturday afternoon ride.
