Connecting ACA Routes / Souther Tier Houston option (Katy Tx)

Hello,  I am looking for a little support to get me into Katy TX off the A.C.A Southern Tier Route.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Sorry I don't have more info right now, just starting looking into this side trip.

Connecting ACA Routes / Southern Tier Big Bend N.P. Option?
« on: January 28, 2012, 02:06:50 pm »
Hello, I was looking for a suggestion on adding Big Bend N.P. to the A.C.A.Southern Tier route.  I have the A.C.A. maps and want to stick to them as much as possible, however I would be up for other options for this stretch of the trip.  I'm not worried about lodging as I will camp where needed at the end of the day and will be carrying food and water.  After a quick look at the maps this is what I have come up with.

-Alpine TX.  Stay on 118 south towards Big Bend
-Continue on 118 South and then head East on 118/Maverick Dr/ 385.
- Stay on 385 east/north through Big Bend and join back up with the Southern Tier in Marathon
-90 east out of marathon.

-Are these roads cycling friendly?
-Any other suggested routes for adding Big Bend?
-Any side trips in Big Bend that I should not miss?

-I'm leaving San Diego Feb, 15 heading East

Thanks in advance for your support.

I am a solo rider leaving San Diego around March 1st as well.  My trip is starting in San Francisco around Feb 20-23, I will ride south to San Diego then head east. I plan on Following the Southern Tier.  My plans are still up in the air for an exact departure date so these dates are tentative.    I will be camping the entire way and stealth camping if needed.
