  5. Jason,

    Please post on your blog directions to Eno’s via the DART light rail. It’s a little far to ride on my bike, especially alone, and I am not sure of the bike only route anyway. I’d rather not drive a car, if I can find another way. I would like to join you, even though I am not Oak Cliff, to show support for what you are doing.

    Thanks,
    Ron M.

  6. Hi Ron,

    Thanks for writing! I’d recommend taking either the Blue or Red DART lines South to Union Station. From there you can either bicycle across the Houston Street Viaduct, and ride West on Colorado, then South Bishop to Bishop Arts, or take the 21 bus from Union straight over to Bishop.

    Hope that helps!
