Where to ride (day trip) From Fort Worth Texas.

All:
Been riding around DFW. I live in Haltom City. I have ridden to Fort Worth, Grandbury, Paris, Weatherford, Gainsville, Waxahaxie, Glenrose and other places of interest.

I have lived here in the DFW area my whole life.

What I am looking for is a good/great day trip that has some scenery and is biker friendly. I would like to stay off the highway as I find it more "relaxed".

Any of you have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Glenn Williams

There is some great scenery out around Possum Kingdom Lake around Graham, TX. What part of FTW are you in?

281 down to Marble Falls, then 71 over to Llano. Stop at Coopers BBQ. Then 16 north to 84 east until it hits 281 again to get home.
