Sense and nonsense, not necessarily in that order, regarding bicycling in and around the city of Plano, Texas.

This blog focuses on these topics, in a positive, respectful, educational and I’m sure humorous manner.

Im new to Plano and keep seeing bike route numbers on the roads around legacy. However when I try to locate them on a map or through Plano Gov website I cannot see start and finish points. Can you help ?
William, I apologize for the delay but I’ve been out of town and just catching up. Here is a link to a high resolution pdf file that you can download from the City of Plano website: http://www.plano.gov/DocumentCenter/View/364
You can zoom in and get substantial detail.
You can also get printed maps from the city Parks and Recreation Department. I use both the pdf and the printed maps often.
William, I am even later than BFP! The routes are also on Google Maps. You have to turn on “bicycling” to see them, I think.
