Overall this was a nice route. We ate breakfast in Fayetteville at Orsack's cafe, and the scenery in and around Fayetteville in the Summer is nice, not much traffic and quite a few curves, hills and twisties. The La Bahia Scenic Byway (390) runs in to Independence where we stopped at the old Baylor University ruins. From there we turned left off of 105 and on to 83 which was good for a couple of miles, if that, or only about half way to 115. The first half of 83 was paved with trees covering the roadway and nice curves. The second half was gravel and dirt and could have been impassable on a bike if it were raining. South of 290, arriving at Raccoon bend, aka, Oil Field Road, wasn't much better. Although it was paved it was a little rough and as the road name inplies, the area appears to be a dumping ground for old oil field equipment, not too much to look at. Getting back to Houston through Brookshire/ Fulshear it was well after noon and uncomfortably hot. I'll have to plan a better way back from Independence if we ride this route again.
