Are you ready to do a ride and camping trip in the Texas Hill Country during wildflower season?

Announcement – drum roll please…

Tour the Texas Hill Country with us (at your own risk) on a self – supported bicycle tour.  If we get 30 or more interested parties we will plan a sag or maybe even entertainment.  So far there is no charge, as in free as a bird!    See the full 405 mile route here or scroll down for segments.  Google Maps would not give a short URL for the complete route.  So I will update and add the segments below.

– Route has been pre-verified.  Simply pay your costs for campground entrance fee (about $5 per night or so) and be ready to roll at 8:00 a.m. daily.  We may change a couple of overnight locations adding a B&B or motel in kerrville / Ingram and Comfort so please bookmark this page, follow for updates.  Entertainment options will be listed as well.
