Richardson, Texas Bike Lanes

with 4 comments

I am a Richardson cyclist with over a year and a half of two-wheeled experience exploring of my home town. I thought I knew all the bike routes around here, until I discovered a new bike lane on Grove Road. This made me wonder if I was missing anything else. So I did a little research and found some information that local riders might find helpful.

Here is a map of the Richardson, Texas Bicycle Route Plan. It appears that Richardson has a pretty extensive plan for cyclists. There’s the bike lane that I took down Grove Road. It stretches between Arapaho and Continental. There is also another bike lane on Custer Road, between Renner Road and Campbell Road. There are planned bike lanes for Mimosa Drive, Waterview Drive, Lookout Drive, Collins Boulevard, Canyon Creek Drive, and Owens Boulevard (between two existing bike trails). I’ve noticed that there are several planned trails as well to connect with the existing ones.

These won’t cover the entire city, but at least they are planning on making many of the other roads “signed routes” which will hopefully help with bicycle awareness around here. It’s a good time to be a cyclist in my town.

If you want more, great information about the Richardson bike lanes and links to Plano, Frisco and Dallas plans, go here. Also, here’s a link to the Texas Transportation Code about bicycles.
